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.

I’m an Ohio based artist living with my husband, John and our Miniature Schnauzer. Before we picked up our new puppy I was going to name her Finster after the artist (Reverend Howard Finster) but when I saw her she didn’t look like a Finster at all so we call her Daisy. When I’m not working, I like to snorkel in clear water, run, hike, bike, kayak and have coffee with friends. I love music, the smell of pine trees, and fresh air.
I’m Mixed Media Artist inspired by the colors, shapes and patterns of the 50’s through the 70’s. By Mixed Media, I simply mean using more than just paint in my pieces. In college I studied fine art metals, printmaking, design, and art history as well as painting and drawing. I incorporate all of it into making my own unique papers and collage elements. Texture, composition and color auditions play a big part in my process and I love my job- it gives me those good brain chemicals. I work and live in Ohio between two studios and teach workshops online and in person all over the country. My strengths are discipline, focus and an absurd sense of humor.
