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’m Sarah Pagliaro! A Columbus-born, freelance artist who recently moved back to my home state after living in Colorado. I graduated Columbus College of Art and Design in 2014 with a BFA in Illustration.

After years of working in a variety of art related jobs, I decided to take a leap and start working for myself in 2021 under my business name “Spooky Moose Studio”. It definitely wasn’t easy, and at first I was a little worried that this would start to drain my passion. However, I stuck through it and now it seems to have ignited a new drive in me that I never knew existed!

Now that I am back in Columbus, I am reminded that my desire to become an artist started right here. Seeing the murals and sculptures downtown, gallery hops with friends, and the artist mentors that taught and inspired me to pursue this line of work. With my love of wildlife and the great outdoors, combined with my spooky-cute aesthetic, my goal is to bring a little bit of happiness and laughter into the world through my art. 

Artist Statement

My goal as an artist is to be able to entertain people of all ages in a way that brings out their own creativity and imagination. Through bizarre, whimsical characters and environments, I want to make people excited about the power of illustration and storytelling.
