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

Abstract art is a glorious exploration of color, shape and line. It is exhilarating and challenging to create works that do not reference the physical world. Instead of relying on the external world of “things”, I am inspired by the possibilities of making something we cannot see but certainly something we can feel. How to explain this alchemy?  I can always tell you how I start (process) and I can show you how I end (the painting) but dang I cannot explain what happens in the middle. The flow? The zone? A daydream in motion? Impossible to gather this middle part. I have learned to trust in the process of creating rather than over analyzing.
