Lovely Original Acrylic Painting by Michael Strauss "Shelburne"
I consider drawing and painting forms of visual reasoning, powerful ways of learning about the world. I live in South Burlington, Vermont, USA. Please feel free to contact me for more information about my work and my teaching (curriculum vitae).
There is more biographical information in the following review of my 2013 book, "The Mind at Hand," by Pamela Polston of Seven Days (April 17, 2013):
South Burlington’s Michael J. Strauss seems to be a study in contrasts: a scientist who is also an artist; a painter who is also a writer; a realist who also has a thing for magic tricks. Or you could say he’s something of a Renaissance man. Strauss calls on all those skills and ways of thinking in his newest book, The Mind at Hand: What Drawing Reveals. And, as if to telescope in further on what lies within, the book cover offers two additional subtitles: Stories of Exploration, Discovery, Design and Drawing to Learn Across the Disciplines.
