Tilly Strauss is a Hudson Valley NY artist with roots on a maple sugar farm and in art history. Her family is full of teachers, artists, curators, and writers and they inform her passion for making and creating opportunities to demystify art. Strauss has been teaching art and art history for 27 years. She has been elected the Town Clerk and Vital Records Manager for her community.
Strauss coaches other artists to show up, emphasizing curiosity and perseverance. She has worked in a variety of media and loves sharing the tips and tricks of her studio practice and encouraging others to establish the discipline that allows magic to happen. She has taught all age groups in schools around the world. Art is a language that embraces diverse and unique voices so with that in mind, Strauss strives to create inclusive, safe, and inspiring experiences for everyone in her studio.
Tilly Strauss graduated from CU Boulder with a BFA in painting and a BA in art history. Since then, nearly a hundred exhibits cover a broad geographic expanse. Her work has been featured in the New York Times, Barcelona Poughkeepsie Journal, Lakeville Journal, and Taconic Newspaper Group. She has been commissioned by Metro North Railroad for a mural in Poughkeepsie at the train station, and by the Miami Parking Authority for two consecutive years of painted parking meters in the Wynwood arts district.
For the last year she has been working on a series of monthly illustrated biographical story-zines, titled “Who Is She?”, that bring to light women artists from history that were incredibly famous in their day and then subsequently erased upon their death.
