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.

Pam Geisel

Home Ohio United States Website: Pam Geisel Art Quilts


Pam Geisel lives in Yellow Springs, Ohio, and spent her first career as a graphic designer, which is why her quilts often have a strong graphic quality. Her art has been included in national fiber exhibits in Oberlin, OH, Paducah, KY, and at the American Quilter’s Society’s Quilt Week in Lancaster, PA where she got an honorable mention. She also exhibits in regional shows open to all media including at the Dairy Barn Arts Center in Athens, OH, and at the Rosewood Art Centre in Kettering, OH, where she took home “Best in Show” for her piece “Early Morning Nine Patch” in a juried landscape competition. Her quilts have been included in the “Fly Me to the Moon” and “Eye Contact” themed exhibits which had national tours and published books. She has also had several articles published in “Art Quilting Studio” magazine.

Artist Statement

Simply put, I paint with fabric. I have always enjoyed art but it was the tactile nature of working with fabric that drew me to quilting. I like to create more texture by adding other fiber elements as surface design. These elements include lace, yarn, embroidery thread, and beads.
People often tell me that my quilts have a real graphic quality about them, and that could be because I was trained as a graphic designer. I often use the computer to design my quilts before I create them, and each quilt usually goes through many transitions before the design is solidified.
I enjoy making both traditional pieced abstract quilts and also representational landscape quilts. With traditional quilts I enjoy the secondary patterns that start to emerge when the blocks are joined together and also how a design will look different if the colors or layout is changed. Lately I’ve been playing with using words and typography in my quilts and exploring creating socio-political art to help the public better understand particular social or political issues.
