About Kaysha Siemens

Kaysha Siemens was born and raised in Canada, and now makes her home in the beautiful and inspiring mountains near Asheville, NC. She shows in various galleries and conventions, and has been exhibiting at IX since 2016. Her work is found in private collections all over the world.

Since childhood, she has held a special love for folklore and mythology, and is fascinated with the way ancient tales resonate over and over, the visual depictions of them forming an unending thread of story from artist to artist and century to century, no matter how literal or oblique the interpretation. Adding the strand of her own voice, her current main focus is 'Mnemosyne,' an ongoing personal project exploring Greek myth. She also regularly ventures outside this ongoing project, as her fancy (or a commission) takes her.

No matter the subject, she seeks to stir with beauty, to arrest with quietude, and ultimately to leave the viewer with a lingering sense that they have had a brush with the sublime.

Projects:

My current primary focus is a personal project titled 'Mnemosyne', an ongoing series inspired by Greek mythology, drawn from heavily (joyfully) researched primary sources, and named for Mnemosyne, the goddess of memory and mother of the muses. I have exhibited at conventions and in galleries for over a decade and a half, in the Showcase at IX from 2016-2019, and in the Main Show 2020-2021. My work has been published in Infected By Art volumes 5 through 9 and Spectrum 26; Chelsey (ASFA) award nominee, ARC Salon Finalist, and participant by invitation in the Beautiful Bizarre exhibitions "Ritual" in 2019, and "Midnight Garden" in 2020. I have background in book illustration, commercial client work, and extensive private commissions.

Location: Swannanoa, NC, USA
