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.

Artist Statement

My paintings reflect my emotional connection to the Magic and Mystery of nature that surrounds me. 

But what is Magic? For me, Magic is the sound of wind, the smell of weather, the dappling of light, the dance of leaves, even rust on a barrel; nothing conventional, usually imaginary, sensitive, sensual, thought provoking.

To begin with, I work intuitively; playing with combinations of colors and textures until the painting nudges me, and reminds me of a feeling, a place, a poem.
