Stratton Featured in Columbus Bar Lawyers Quarterly Article "Lawyers With Artistic License"

Eve Stratton, of counsel in the Vorys Columbus office who prior to joining Vorys was a justice on the Supreme Court of Ohio, was the subject of an article in the Spring 2021 edition of the Columbus Bar Lawyers Quarterly titled "Lawyers With Artistic License." The article discusses Eve's life, creative history and artistic pursuits.

The article states:

"While Eve was on the bench, she resurrected her high school enjoyment of painting. She began with oil paints. However, Eve admits to being an impatient painter, and oils took too long to dry, so she moved on to acrylic paints and pastels. Her paintings are of animals and outdoor scenes. Now Eve wonders what to do with the rest of her many painted and stored canvases!

In 2016, Eve stepped down from the Court and joined the Vorys firm ‘of counsel’. She admits that she has not picked up a paintbrush since then, although she doesn’t rule out resuming that hobby.

Eve has, however, continued to pursue other creative outlets, including crafting birthday and special occasion cakes. She began making theme cakes for each son’s birthday. The themes have ranged over the years from teddy bears and trains to lightsabers, shields and swords. Eve bakes the cakes in square or round pans, and then cuts and pieces the shapes together to create her desired form. She finishes them off with decorative frosting and icings, considering them 'definitely home-made.'"
