The Ohio Artist Registry (OAR) is an exciting opportunity for artists to share their work, connect with the creative community, and establish an online presence—all on a free, virtual platform! The OAR encourages artists working in all art forms, throughout Ohio and beyond, to create a profile, which allows them to better promote themselves and their work. Being listed in the OAR provides artists with new opportunities to share their work with clients, galleries, patrons, and audiences. A listing in the OAR does not confer an endorsement, approval, or verification by the Ohio Arts Council.

Fine art painter and printer
My father drew a very detail portrait of me when I was about 4 years old, I wanted to do the same.
My mother and I would color coloring books and work puzzles, soon I was adding shadows and mixing colors. When she would get a new pair of stockings there would be a white panel of paper that I would use for drawing. I was quick to notice when she had a run in her stockings so I could get another sheet to draw on.
My God given gifts were sparked!

I enjoy creating figurative paintings and drawings that tell a story and often my inspiration comes from the night sky. I imagine Copernicus in a star-chart sweater, a procession of constellations and whimsical moons. Central to my artwork is Psalm 19 which begins, “The Heavens declare the glory of God.” I work primarily in oil with mixed media like gold and silver metal leaf and sheet music.

JOHN CHRISTENSEN – BIO
John Christensen is an artist working in Austin, Texas. Born in New York City, he received degrees in Visual and Environmental Studies – and art – from Harvard and the University of Texas. Before 1990, he developed a body of site-sensitive work in rural landscapes of New York, Georgia and Texas. Since 1990, he has focused that sensibility on projects for the theater and the public place. He has created, in collaborations with choreographers, interactive props and theatrical environments for 30 productions presented in the Americas, Europe, Asia and Australia. He has designed and built commercial spaces, and, unique and production furniture. Working in a variety of media he has exhibited around the country. He has completed 20 large scale public and private commissions in Austin, Dallas, Houston, Albuquerque, Miami, Tucson, Portland and Fort Worth. Collaborating with other design professionals he developed infrastructure and interactive art for a municipal park. He brings to any project an unusually broad set of technical and conceptual skills. In recent sculptures and reliefs he has arranged motifs to evoke organic systems – branching rhizomes, biotic colonies, neural networks, wave interference patterns, polymers – clustered works with perceptual associations that make poetic connections between phenomena in disparate fields. He sustains a studio practice, going to his studio most days to make things.
