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 email@example.com or 614-728-6140.

My art practice expresses passion for materials and methods and for finding a balance between product and process. My artwork is about both the content of the piece and the way in which it is created. I create medial objects that bridge between worlds.
Intricate and repetitive processes, such as beading, stitching, binding, and embellishing, bring visual and haptic power to my work. I am inspired by expressions of other cultures that capture similar ideas, from the pointillism of Aboriginal artworks to the sequined surfaces of Haitian Voodoo flags.
