Vivienne Strauss

thank you Margie for taking the time to do this! I've enjoyed reading each of these interviews and will come back and read them again when my own inspiration is lagging.


Hej Margie,

Thanks for letting me "meet" Vivienne. Her paintings remind me of paintings made by Grandma Moses.
Think I'm gonna find her biography again and look at the paintings.

See you.

hank you so much Margie and Vivienne for another fantastic interview. I have been pouring over Vivienne's work via Flickr and I am so glad to have found her! I love the incredibly stylish ladies and gentlemen that inhabit your creative world, the titles are very teasing tastes of the narratives behind the paintings. It would be wonderful to hear some of these stories at greater length, I am desperate to know if Marcel and Yvette are still together?! Thank you both again. XXX

Vivienne is my best friend we have only spent two nights apart in 6 years. She usually knows what I'm going to say before I even say it.:) She is my whole world .I don't think there is any way we could be closer.
I'm so glad you did this interview her work is so wonderful and original. Thank you Margie!

vivienne is one of the sweetest and most talented people i've ever met..although we've only really met through flickr..but i'm moving to portland just so i can meet her in person! :D

thank you for doing this interview and sharing her talent with the world.
(you're a great interviewer, btw!)


I'm so happy to be home so I and can sit down with a hot cup while reading through this incredible week. I'm so in love with Vivienne's work! What a pleasure to find out more about her. I can't get enough of her characters and their story lines. Her collages are incredible... I especially enjoy her vintage camera ones. Her relationship with Matt is so romantic and deep. I love how you started the interview with their paintings of each other! You do this so well, Margie!

Vivienne's work exudes joy and good Karma!

I looove Vivienne's work! There is something some pure and genuine in each one of her pieces. You really have a great eye Margie for finding the creative jewels out there in the world. Vivienne is without doubt a very special one.
