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.

Artist Statement

I have always loved to paint, and recreating peaceful bits of beauty that make viewers pause and ponder brings joy. My paintings use mostly soft, dreamy pastels and deep, moody tones. If any of my paintings draw people to the Creator of all things, then I have achieved one of my goals. I paint mostly nature; branches, blooms, water, and skies, but will also dabble in abstract when inspired. I use oil and watercolor to achieve the effects I want. Evoking mood is more important to me than realism. As an idealistic dreamer, art is both an escape and the way I reach out to others. Leonardo Davinci once said that “Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen.” I concur.
