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 email@example.com or 614-728-6140.

Paintings tell a story, and are a visual record of the artist’s journey.
I like to paint common scenes that people love because they can look at it and smile. Much of my art centers around locations that mean something to me because of the people that I am with that make the memory. With feelings of endearment towards these places with family and friends, I have found that others have common sentiment.
Evolve, Don’t Give Up, Strive, WORK HARD, Have Fun, Enjoy the short journey, Explore, Adventure, Travel.
Inspiration and growth usually comes after hardship.
