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

After writing for two decades, I was developing an idea that I knew could be better expressed as a painting.   I took up painting full-time.

My work is about inner energy.  I sign the inner energy of the subject onto the canvas.

Along with focusing on the inner energy of my subject matter, I am constantly working with an awareness that humans have an ancient need to see form, be it in clouds or in chipped paint on a wall or in waving leaves.  The ability to decipher forms is part of our oldest survival skills.  Imagine the advantage of being able to quickly spot the approaching bear among the shifting shadows of trees–the advantage and the thrill.

The energy from the work is intended excite the viewer, but after a longer look, lead the viewer into a place of thoughtful tranquility.

I work with acrylics on canvas and sumi-e inks on rice paper.
