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.

Artist Statement

Subjects charged with saturated color and intricate shapes have always informed my art. Sometimes the images that capture me are disparate, even quotidian – but when I recombine them through color and composition, they evoke fresh sensations. Capturing the intensity and joy I feel when lured to the wonders of the physical work and sharing my works to elicit the same kind of happiness is one of my principle goals as an artist.
