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.

My artwork’s content is found in culture, especially current events, and social issues. I use found images and found objects and text to make sculpture, assemblages, and digital prints. My ideas may take me on a search for appropriate materials or the materials themselves might yield possibilities. I like to exploit a familiar idea or object and bring it into a new reality. In this way I involve the viewer as they see recognizable subject matter. The use of text also serves as a way to get the viewer involved and adds to the form as a decorative skin. In all three forms I am interested in the element of space. The form of my artwork reveals the content.
