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.

The work I create comes from a sincere, introspective space where I seek to resolve issues of my identity. From childhood to adulthood, to fatherhood, and everything in between, every piece acts as a critical thinking session that brings me closer to a better understanding of self. This is communicated through figurative charcoal drawings and oil paintings that are rendered with such a care for detail that the power of my connection to the subject matter shines through.

The imperative inner dialogues that exist in my work allow me to effectively define the role of my relationship to the world, and hopefully inspires others to do the same.
