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 spent my childhood in a rural community in Ohio before moving to a suburban area where I currently reside with my beautiful wife. She brings me endless joy and support in everything I do. We share our home with our loyal canine companion, Captain, who has been our faithful friend for many years.


As a senior solution architect for a software development company, I take pride in my work and enjoy the challenges that come with it. I find fulfillment in solving complex problems and designing efficient solutions that make a positive impact on people’s lives.


In my free time, I have an exciting and unique hobby as a licensed professional pyrotechnician. I am passionate about creating dazzling and unforgettable fireworks displays that bring joy and wonder to people of all ages. It is a rewarding experience that allows me to express my creativity and share my love for this art form with others.

Artist Statement

Hello, my name is Michael Randall, and I would like to express my gratitude for your interest in my work. Photography has been my passion for over two decades, and I have never looked back. The technical and logical nature of photography appeals to me, as I can apply various techniques before, during, and after capturing an image to achieve precise results. These techniques enable me to showcase the beauty of nature while incorporating my own artistic style.


I feel fortunate to have been at the right place at the right time to capture special moments. In my opinion, there are no limits to capturing the perfect image. I am prepared to go to great lengths, such as standing in water, searching for the most optimal angle, and experimenting with new techniques, to achieve excellence in every photograph I take. With my technical background, I apply my knowledge throughout my post-processing workflow, online presentation, and artwork appearance. I use a wide range of equipment and software options to ensure attention to detail and produce the best possible results.
