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 or 614-728-6140.

I was born in Wooster, Ohio. At 16 years old I moved to Rochester, NY.  I graduated from Bryant & Stratton with an Associate Degree in Business Management. I attended Monroe Community College and earned an Associate Degree in Liberal Arts, Humanities & Social Sciences. I graduated from The College at Brockport State University of New York with a Bachelors Degree in English Literature. I have three children and a grandson. I returned to my hometown, Wooster in 2018. I have pursued art in all forms since childhood and am now, professionally an artist.

Artist Statement

Art has been my form of expression since childhood. I have grown as an artist in my life through technique and skill. Being an artist full-time, I have matured further in my work. The perspective of color, light, shapes, depth, texture and symbolism, enhance the stories of my images to a higher level. Mixed Media affords me a range of freedom to incorporate both mediums to reach broader techniques which bring a greater fulfillment in my work. I want to connect with the world through my stories while being my true authentic self.
