"The charming characters in the works by Dancing Fork stem from the imagination and creativity of Lauren Shelley Strom. Her bold colors and sweet-faced birds seem to pop right off the canvas. Strom uses acrylics and watercolors, and has a range of outlets for her art including drawings in charcoal and ink, in addition to sewing leg warmers, hats, and mittens from recycled sweaters. Her Northeast studio in the Casket Arts building is open to the public the first Thursday night of every month."
