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. For more information, contact Kathy Signorino, artist programs director, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 614-728-6140.
In 1989, I went to Ohio University and majored in Fine Art; before that, I also took numerous art classes in high school. Through 2001 to 2003, I went to Columbus State and dabbled in Interactive Multimedia where I completed courses in graphic design, web design and numerous other software design courses. I then changed majors and decided to pursue a Paralegal Degree and Criminal Justice degree for stability and to fund my art hobby. I continue to stay involved with my creative side learning new mediums to create art with. I have taken a strong liking to photography while dabbling with acrylic paintings. As of today, I have a good balance between my career and art life.
“Being an artist encourages me to grow as a person and to relish in my own uniqueness. I learn how to connect to all aspects of life. Whether I am taking pictures or creating paintings, I want to be able to take a person to a place deep in their minds of imagination and splendor.”
