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.

STEVEN RIGGS is a professional artist residing in central Ohio and maintaining a studio in Circleville Ohio.

My work is realism. I work in oils, graphite, watercolor and mixed media. I am known for my portraits. Exhibit quite often and accept commissions throughout the year.

I have worked extensively in the field of architecture, design and classical artwork utilizing archival materials in Old World methods.

Artist Statement

My work is reminiscent of the post-renaissance… it is realism. My paintings can be reminiscent of the pre-raphaelite era yet also with a touch of modern aestheticism.

I do quite a few commissions throughout the year. I am known for my portrait work. I love to capture not just the likeness of the subject but the personality. I usually spend as much time on the eyes as I do much of the rest of the portrait.

My work is reasonably priced and I only utilize archival materials.
