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. For more information, contact Kathy Signorino, artist programs director, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 614-728-6140.

I have been making art since childhood. I began in drawing and illustrating, studied a wide variety of media and approaches in college, pursued printmaking and went on to metalwork and ceramics in graduate school. For the past 12 years, I have settled into painting. I have been shown in New York. Iowa, Oregon, California, North Carolina, Arizona. In Ohio, I have been shown in Mansfield, Granville, Mt Vernon and Columbus. Many pieces are in private collections and several large sculptural pieces are in public places.
I paint people. My paintings are views of life out in the world, sometimes with humor, but often in groupings that hinge on those moments when we look out for each other, the altruism that points to the goodness in all of us.
