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.
For more information, contact Kathy Signorino, artist programs director, at or 614-728-6140.

Artist Statement

As an artist, I am drawn to the complexity and beauty of systems and patterns found in both the natural world and in mathematics. In my work, I explore these themes through a combination of traditional art materials and the many mediums of fiber art, using a variety of techniques to create intricate and detailed pieces that reflect the interconnectedness of all things.

My art is inspired by the inherent order and balance found in the universe, and I seek to capture this sense of harmony in my compositions. Whether working with traditional fiber arts materials or incorporating new technologies, I strive to create pieces that are aesthetically pleasing and intellectually engaging.

Through my art, I hope to inspire viewers to see the world in a different light, to appreciate the hidden structures and patterns that shape our lives and our environment. Whether examining the delicate veins of a leaf or the tiniest hand stitching of my fiber artwork, I believe that by delving into the underlying systems and patterns that govern the world around us, we can better understand and connect with our place in the cosmos.
