Strauss Moore Shiple is a US Army veteran who graduated from Wake Forest University (BA Communications) and has done extensive course work towards her Masters of Divinity degree. She loves her family and friends, blues and jazz music, reading, traveling, gardening, writing short stories and photography. Strauss is an avid FaceBook fan and an ordained minister. Her love and appreciation of the arts have increased in the past few years, and she is considering ways to help bring an awareness and importance of the arts to the small rural community where she lives. While she does not consider herself an artist or a creative person, she does know it when she sees it. Strauss’ goal is to be a producer or creator of opportunities for the arts to become known and flourish, especially little-known or under-represented expressions of artistic endeavors.
