Loren Siems

Siems derives imagery from her own body and experiences as a point of departure for a way to visually understand a woman’s view and interaction with the world around her. She expresses non-traditional beauty by playing on nostalgia for traditional beauty and certain ideals of feminine behavior, while urging girls to grow to be strong independent women with a sense of reflection, a respect for our female predecessors, and a mind for changing the future.

Loren Siems is an American Artist, who has continuously exhibited for over ten years. She has shown globally at Envoy Enterprises in New York, NY, Antenna Gallery in New Orleans, LA, and the Siena Arts Institute in Italy, among others.
