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

Reimagining is Repurposing

My personal definition of an artist is someone who combines imagination with purpose. By mining a wealth of “decaying” material (discarded photos, old newsprint, books stripped of their covers, etc.) I seek to repurpose it – imbuing new life in old forms. My goal is to inspire those who see my work as symbolic of reimagining new worlds out of old ideas.
