My name is Jessica Siemens and I am a magic surrealist. I travel the world photographing interesting landscapes and add to my compositions, images that intrigue me, resulting in surrealist works of art. I am obsessed with all things fantasy, having grown up playing MMORPG’s such as EverQuest, Dark Ages of Camelot, World of Warcraft, Elder Scrolls Online and Guild Wars 1 and 2. While painting, I repeatedly listen to the Harry Potter audiobook series.
I am also fascinated by how the universe works. I decided to research chemistry and technology on YouTube extensively, falling into the rabbit hole for days at a time. I realized our world is made of exquisite elements. The devices we use every day are powered by waves of energy and invisible light and I have come to the conclusion that chemistry is magic. As my work slowly evolves to juxtapose reality and fantasy, I explore surrealism while trying to show the viewer how magnificent our world around us is.
I graduated from San Diego State University in 2010 with a Bachelors of Art in Painting. SDSU purchased two of my paintings through purchase awards and displays them on campus in their permanent collection. I then lived in Brooklyn, NY for four years, selling my paintings to private collectors and through Axelle Fine Arts Gallery in Manhattan. After NY I returned to California to teach private art lessons for five years. I now live abroad in Greece discovering new horizons to inspire my work.
I sell original landscape and surrealist paintings and work for the commission from photographs to create custom works of art. If you, a friend or a family member is interested in taking private virtual fine art lessons or would like to commission your own unique painting, please email me at JessXalepa@gmail.com.
