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

James is an engineer and an artist. My paintings combine these two aspects of my personality: precision and expression. My style is a distinct play between positive and negative space, and the results are vivid, abstract paintings.

The engineer influences my painting through technical precision and knowledge of geometry. I strive for perfection when I put brush to canvas. I do not fear a clean, polished product. As an artist, I choose and apply my colors spontaneously. This is a free expression of the moment.

My goal, simply, is to create highly aesthetic work.
