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.

Artist Statement

I enjoy practicing realism in my most recent body of drawing artwork. My color pencil work ranges from a celebration of the everyday items around us- the bright colors and pops of fun to a beautiful portrait of a mermaid peeking out from a coral shelf. Sometimes we overlook the little things, but my intention is to celebrate bright spots, big and small. I use color pencil to create fine detail with emotion and love.
