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.

I have been creating sculptural works exploring our spiritual relationship with Nature since the early ‘90’s. I have attempted to share my ideas about our need to create a better relationship with Nature as a way to find peace within ourselves and each other. Works include a commission of interpretive public art work for the Openlands Lakeshore Preserve, an environmental sculpture for the Guandu International Outdoor Sculpture Festival in Taiwan and completed three trees for the Chicago Tree Project.

Artist Statement

If we wrap our naked soul’s in the raw and mysterious power of nature, taking refuge, we would leave personal artifacts, vessels with the voice of nature.

The human experience is explored through natural materials which bring the viewer away from the controlled man made world and into the raw and mysterious realm of Nature where I believe we are vulnerable and the most real.
