About vivstrauss

Sales 2,105
On Etsy since 2008

Every portrait is a self portrait. - Oscar Wilde

Vivienne Strauss has been a full-time artist since 2008. While she is not formally trained as an artist, she has a background in philosophy, is an avid reader, cinephile and nature lover. Her time spent when not creating is sharing a life with husband and artist, Matte Stephens. They co-parent a household of pets, now including one cat and three dogs.

Unable to confine her expressions to a single medium, Strauss works in oils, watercolors, paper and glue, needle and thread, digital photography and the typed word.

She sells worldwide, and has shown in Seattle, WA; Portland, OR; Los Angeles, CA; Tokyo, Japan; Manchester, UK; Portsmouth, NH; Peterborough, NH; Groton, MA; New York, NY;
