Martha’s Vineyard is a “home away from home.” Mornings are slow, but not too late. We take our travel mugs of coffee to the trails to enjoy the cool breeze off the Atlantic. The smell of salt lingers as the topography undulates and we appreciate quirky formations. The dense forest and thick marshes abruptly open to meadows. We come here for this view.

Having Fun During COVID-19

Mike Kraus was born on the industrial shoreline of Muskegon, Michigan. After earning his Fine Arts Degree from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, he attended Grand Valley State University for his graduate degree. From there, he gained varied experiences from the Chicago Architecture Foundation, Art Institute of Chicago, Hauenstein Center For Presidential Studies, Lollypop Farm Humane Society, and the Children’s Memorial Foundation. And every place he worked, he had his sketchbook with him and found ways to be actively creative. In 2014, Kraus became a full-time artist by establishing Mike Kraus Art. Since then, he has sold thousands of paintings that are displayed in nearly every state and dozens of countries. Currently, Kraus lives in Rochester, New York with his beautiful wife and goofy dog.
