About Rebecca Siemering

Rebecca Siemering was born in Omaha, Nebraska in 1974, and lives and works in Pawtucket, Rhode Island. She received a BFA from Washington University in St. Louis, and is an installation artist, arts administrator and curator. For the majority of her career, she has explored the theme of "wanting the good life," utilizing found materials. Currently she is producing sculptures and textile art for her "Lottery Project" by taking a daily walk in the neighborhood and picking up thrown away scratch tickets. From her findings she creates animistic textile pieces and tapestries. Her methodical, yet compulsive style of stitch and needlework reflects the original obsession-to rise above the mundane, the sculpture embodying a soul that exists apart from the corporeal article of ink and pulp. Her recycled, paper-based work is in the collection of Fidelity Investments, and in traveling in shows with the Robert C. Williams Paper Museum, the Fuller Craft Museum and Fiber Art International.
