Manfred Sieber, born in 1951, is a
Munich-based artist who works primarily in water colors.
His passion for painting nature scenes
developed back in 1979. A self-taught artist at first, he
soon began his studies with one of Munich's renound
artists, Eckhard Zylla, and subsequently attended many
years of Zylla's classes in painting.
Numerous travels with paint study groups
have taken him preferably to Southern Europe, Asia and
the Caribic Islands.
The artist paints scenes in Munich and its
surrounding areas on a regular basis.
The paintings originate in nature so as to
capture the emotions of light, changing seasons, and
weather patterns, which results in spontaneous and actual
works of art.
Manfred Sieber resides in Munich, Germany.
