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.

I was born in Dayton, Ohio. My family moved and I grew up in Melbourne, FL until I became an adult and enlisted in the USArmy. I noticed at an early age I was naturally gifted in art, although I never really took it up seriously until an adult in 2010. Most of my career has been as a machinist, although I have also worked as a commercial truck triver, and also in the food service industry. I’ve never attended college or universities for formal art training. Some of my career as a machinist I received education in computer aided drafting. This and generally being mechanically inclined has helped define much of my artistic ability in that I can visualize objects in 3 dimensions and how light affects color and shading. As I am now retired early, in my 50’s I look forward to producing the majority of my artwork in my latter years, and also develop other mediums to consider.
My art reflects on spontaneous ideas that usually lean towards surrealism. I mostly paint digitally using a stylus and tablet. I do also ink traditional art, but find digital art is more quickly executed. I enjoy mainly painting geometric structures and objects with high detail as I like to create works with a large amount of realism. I employ signs and symbols in some of my work and include hidden ‘easter eggs’ in some for personal enjoyment. In the future I hope to take my art and explore travelling to local festivals to sell works commercially.
