Born in Oakland, California, Siegrist attended the California College of Arts and Crafts and the California School of Fine Art in San Francisco. In 1919, Siegriest became a member of a group named the Society of Six – a group of artists who rebelled against tonalist landscape painters and instead strived to paint more colorful paintings of modern Europe. Siegriest later painted more abstractly and created brush and ink paintings of Virginia City. Siegriest’s work has been exhibited at the Oakland Museum, the George Krevsky Gallery, and various other collections.
