Wes and Rachelle Siegrist are a husband and wife team who capture the attention of viewers not with outstretched canvas but with miniature paintings so exquisitely crafted that they are often mistaken for tiny photographs. Their tiny treasures, as collectors often refer to them, typically measure less than nine square inches and appear even more detailed when viewed under magnification! The Artists engage and draw their viewers ever closer to the point where they often become lost within the miniature world of the Siegrists. Even so, theirs are not merely small paintings but replete works of fine art capable of standing alongside conventionally sized works and competing in color, composition, and value, in spite of the fact that their exquisite detail is presented on a greatly reduced scale. A hallmark of their work is the ability to convey the feel of larger canvases or the essence of the natural world in miniature.
