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.
For more information, contact Kathy Signorino, artist programs director, at or 614-728-6140.

Born and raised in West Virginia, Ginny has lived and worked in Tennessee, Louisiana, Missouri and Ohio. Her career in deaf education and rehabilitative audiology afforded her a variety of experiences and travel opportunities.  During that time, drawing and painting was a hobby applied to special projects for schools, churches and community projects.  After retirement, with time more readily available, she began taking classes at the Columbus Cultural Arts Center to pursue her art and explore the opportunities in art.  

Ginny’s work has been included in the several private exhibitions, Ohio Art League: “Home Works Series: November Exhibition” and was co-curator for “Central Ohio Artist’s Pandemic Art: Expressions Through Art” presented at the Columbus Historical Society.

Artist Statement

Observing people and Nature inspires my work. I enjoy doing portraits and visual storytelling and although I am exploring other media, I prefer pencils and pastels.
