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 or 614-728-6140.

Artist Statement

As a mixed media artist, I find much of my inspiration in nature. It has always been what grounds me and calms my soul. Botanicals and natural elements often have a place in my work. I find joy and excitement in experimenting with color and compositions. But what I really love is mixing mediums in unexpected ways.
