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.

Amy Yosmali, a native of Greater Cincinnati has been an art lover all her life, but it wasn’t until 2001 that she began to explore the visual arts, especially painting, as a medium of self-expression. While her initial artistic endeavors were in music, she now considers herself a practitioner of the visual arts, especially contemporary abstract art.

Artist Statement

As a contemporary abstract artist, I feel that my passion for expressing myself emotionally is best conveyed through the imagery resulting from the instrumentation of colors, brushstrokes and movement on the blank canvas before me. Vibrant colors and action are important features of my art and I like to incorporate acrylics with metallic qualities to add depth, dimension and movement to my works. Much like a musician reacts to her surroundings and the moment, resulting in certain musical elements standing out and connecting with the audience – my paintings react to the nuances of their surrounding environments, inviting the viewer to connect with an ever changing perspective to the complexity of this expression.
