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.

I am an artist, mother and graduate of Columbus College of Art and Design. Art is and has always been an outlet for me to deal with the stresses of life and anxiety. I focus in oil panting and some mixed medi.

Artist Statement

My work focuses on portraiture and reaching out to the viewer over common feelings of life, love and personal struggle. The size of my work varieties by medium and subject. I am experimenting with gold leaf, wood paneling and texture. However, I always use human subjects captured at unusual angles to force the viewer to notice other details and be submerged in the piece.
