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. For more information, contact Kathy Signorino, artist programs director, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 614-728-6140.

The foundation for my artistic vision is based on the concept that the idea dictates the medium. As an arts advocate, I work within a variety of mediums with a current focus on installation. Formally trained as a muralist alongside interdisciplinary artistic pursuits, I incorporate cultural traditions in the philosophy and creation of the work and look forward to collaborative efforts. Nature is often a theme and source material while recognizing the ephemeral quality to my work based on site specific materials and or delicacy of the material. I am currently focussing on the healing components of art and material. Exploring ways to connect various communities through scaled art projects is a focus to foster dialogue for the purpose of arts engagement.
