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.

Originally from Holland, Ohio, Craig Fisher is a 1976 graduate of the University of Toledo. With the exception of a year of study in Europe, he has lived most of his life in Northwest Ohio.
He is a mid-career artist who is unapologetic about being very much a “local kid”. His commercial career spans over three decades as a graphic designer, art director and commercial illustrator. He has worked for over 35 years in advertising agencies and visual learning companies where he has honed his talent for conceptualizing and employing metaphors to teach and engage.
Craig studied with local watercolor artist, Walter Chapman while still in high school. He studied under Diana Attie, Peter Elloine and John Botts as a fine art student at The University of Toledo. He credits the University and its teachers for his love for printmaking and a natural curiosity for the potential of line and form.
Craig currently lives in Sylvania Township with his wife Marian. His studio, Ibis Press, is in his home where he joins the traditional with the contemporary as he pushes the medium of intaglio etching into new directions.

I love black and white photography, and I love to shoot film. I am the dinosaur in the camera club that still shoots film. I don’t discriminate against digital equipment and images, but I feel better shooting film. I use 35mm, medium format, and large format cameras. And I work with pinhole, toy, and panorama cameras. My favorite subjects are urban structures. I shoot on bright sunny days; I never met a shadow I didn’t like.
Art has tightly held my heart since childhood and ultimately became a spiritual journey of learning to trust my inner voice. My art making is always evolving, intuitive, soul nourishing and FUN. My personal Mantra “ Look for Joy and Listen for Guidance” is embedded in my art practice. My pieces are full of color and spirit, whether figurative or abstract. I continue to learn and push myself to create art that can inspire and uplift.. I am open to serendipity and chance both in art and life and trust that the unexpected can lead to amazing things.
My name is Jean Frantz, and I am an Impressionist. I love working in all mediums, but my favorite is pastel. Inspired by the beauty I see everywhere, and by artists such as Mary Cassatt (1844-1926), Edgar Degas (1834-1917), the French Impressionists of the 19th century, Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890), and countless others; I paint.
