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

Artistically I believe working toward complete command of a tool or process is part of the journey in realizing one’s vision and should not necessarily be an end in itself. For me, the most exciting work is that which is strong conceptually, with compelling content and minimal market oriented compromises, work that is both visually and intellectually stimulating to the viewer.
