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.

This  Puerto Rican – American artist , Consuelo Yuisa Deus  was born in Brooklyn , New York. Now residing in Elyria Ohio. She received her B.A. from Cleveland State University in 2013 with a concentration of Digital media and Graphics Design. 

Growing up in the drug infested projects of Brooklyn, East New York, imagination was the only way to escape the harsh reality of her environment in the late 80s and 90’s. But with an artistic eye, she was able to find beauty amongst the havoc she grew up in.

Her art style is influenced a bit by Modigliani. But it flourished into something much more. Her contemporary art style uses mix media, modern, figurative abstracts, with graffiti influences. Her main goal with her art is to make people smile and make happy memories.

Deus  is currently showing at the MoCa Cleveland in the Rayburn Gallery , curated by Julia De Burgos Cultural Arts Center . She has also exhibited her art in the Peoples Art show at CSU, Popeyes Gallery and at the Stocker Art Center.  Deus has also had displayed her works at several businesses and collectors in NYC , Ohio and online. In 2020 Consuelo Deus won an online art contest by The ArtExpo at Pier 90 from NYC. But because of covid restrictions she was unable to go.  She also has been published in ” The Best of 3d Graphics by RockPort Publishing” and made lots of art related contributions to her community , such as The Boys and Girls club, Keystone and Elyria City schools. She has also won numerous awards for web and graphic design.

She loves to create in all forms of art such as painting, sculpting, prop /stage design or halloween prop building. Even par taking in art clubs and helping with murals and art projects at Keystone and Elyria City schools. Consuelo’s art has made the news media one way or another. Since 2018  Consuelo joined an online group called Cleveland Haunt Club that has suddenly exploded in 2019 into a mega group due to all the news media on several of it’s members, she included.  She is constantly improving and upgrading her skills of fine art, homemade props/ sculptures and currently learning to do animatronics to bring her sculptures to life.  In 2022 and 2023 she won first prize and runners up in an international online contest for her Halloween sculptures on Instructables.
