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 or 614-728-6140.

I grew up in Long Island, NY, near the ocean. To this day, I’m still inspired by nature and landscapes, water and rain.
As a self-taught artist, I let my creativity flow, trying not to have any preconceived ideas about the end result. This allows my results to be raw and unfiltered. I hope that others experience that escape and feel as if they can take their minds to the settings within each piece.
Before the pandemic, I was drawn to darker colors and shadows. My process of creation had always been, and continues to be, a refuge from my past and present struggles with opioid addiction as well as from symptoms of depression, anxiety and bipolar disorder.
Since the start of the pandemic, I have experienced increased isolation and loneliness. Since spending more time on my own social distancing, my creativity and productivity have increased. I now find myself drawn to brighter colors, in contrast with the bleak reality we are all living in. I wake up at first light and work on art projects and continue all day until nightfall!
The pandemic has taught me that I can find my creative sanctuary regardless of what is going on with the world and no matter what tools I have at my disposal. Rather than using traditional paints and brushes, I use household materials. I want people to understand and appreciate that anyone can be an artist and that often times the mediums we need to make are things we already own.

Artist Statement

I obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in Early/Middle Childhood Education from The Ohio State University 1979-1987. While at OSU, I took an art class and realized I liked painting.

From 1990-2003 I tutored children in English, Writing and Reading as well as Arts and Crafts.

I started painting on a more full time basis in 2013.  

In May 2020, I was a featured artist in Columbus Alive. The article was based on my solo show at Fresh A.I.R. Gal-lery. Later in the year, with my Stroll through Central Park painting, I was Signature/Feature Artist for the annual Art in Recovery at Fresh A.I.R. Gallery.
