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.

After over 40 years working in (and teaching) film/video production, I returned to my first love of sculpture and to my childhood home of Gambier, Ohio. I work in wood, as local and non-exotic as possible, making small pieces and showing them in the region.  I have been shown at the Mansfield Art Center, the Dairy Barn (Athens), The Schnormeier Gallery (Mt Vernon), and The Galleries on High (Columbus).

Artist Statement

My work is fairly small scale, made of local woods and natural reed, and colored with stains or acrylics. When I work, I shrink myself and go for walks across the curving surfaces, exploring the the peaks and crevices, a virtual expedition.  My hope is that the viewer will be moved to take similar journeys.
