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.
For more information, contact Kathy Signorino, artist programs director, at or 614-728-6140.

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.

James’ desire to capture and express how nature made him feel would become a life-long passion.  Fueled by early exposure to French Impressionism and American Landscape Painting, he began to express the rural images of his hometown through painting.  Intrigued by light and color, he sets out to create two-dimensional works that reflect the natural phenomenon not only discovered in Connecticut, but traveling the country, the world, and Northeast Ohio, where he now resides.
