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.

She has been the recipient of seven Ohio Arts Council Individual Artist Excellence awards and has held numerous residencies. In 2019 she was the director of the Kenyon-Rome program.

I work in wood, as local and non-exotic as possible, making small pieces and showing them in the region. I have been shown at the Mansfield Art Center, the Dairy Barn, The Schnormeier Gallery, and The Galleries on High (
