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.

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.”
