I love this print! It could be the daily line up at my house but I have just four cats. The style is charming and makes me smile every time I look at it. Thank you so much, Viv.

Very nice print and the painting was so well done by the artist to reflect the subject. Very well received by someone who has visited Flannery's living room.

Even better in person. Deep rich colors and very whimsical kitties make this one of my favorite pieces so far! Many thanks for the extra gift too!! Loved it as well...

About

Every portrait is a self portrait. - Oscar Wilde

A self-taught painter with a background in Philosophy, Vivienne Strauss works predominantly in oil and watercolor, her paintings often migrating around the humor of being human – shared dejection, things left unsaid, false arrogance, disbelief, inspired irony. She is an observer and chronicler, in the actual world in which she exists and in the world of characters she creates, exposing, with precise wit, the subterranean elements lying in wait beneath the deceptively quotidian.

With a ceaseless affection for all animals most everywhere, Strauss is an admirer of classic films and literature, namely Dorothy Parker and John Cheever, and engages in vintage spelunking with a particular affinity for old photographs, timeless typography, and sartorial styles.

Her work has been in several publications, including EdgyCute from Neo-Pop to Low Brow and Back Again (Harry Saylor) and Indie Craft (Jo Waterhouse). On occasion, she works in collage and her cut-paper, pop portrait collages can be seen both on the cover of Lea Godard’s published compilation of short stories, Femmes Contre Nature, Ray Parnac’s Croque-Monsieur, and on Vogue photographer Tim Walker’s web site. Her collage work was featured in The Guardian in 2016.

    I am inspired by so much. When I'm not reading, I'm either painting or sleeping.
