Originally from northern Illinois, Siena studied Printmaking/Drawing and Environmental Studies at Washington University in St. Louis. After graduating in 2011, she relocated to Southeastern Ohio to renovate her mother's childhood home and co-founded an art nonprofit called MITCH Collective with two fellow art students. In addition to coordinating the artist residency program, Siena has taught at West Liberty University, TechShop Pittsburgh, The Warhol Museum, and Crittenton Services, Inc. Siena combined her love for art and technology by participating in the revolutionary Digital Fabrication Residency. Her day to day involves baking French bread and pastries at Good Mansion Wines in Wheeling, WV, but her adventures have taken her around the world. She ventured north to Canada for the Below Zero Artist Residency in Quebec, to Tuscany, Italy for the Color into Print printmaking workshop with Shelley Thorstensen, to coastal California for a Permaculture Design Certificate at OAEC, to Ecuador for an epic birthday trip, and to Philadelphia for a hand lettering and sign painting class with Mike Meyer (featured in the movie Sign Painters).
Fun fact: you can see Siena light up the small screen in HBO's documentary series Masterclass! Look for Episode 5 with Olafur Eliasson.
