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.

I didn’t go to art school. I found a Nikon FA 35mm Camera in my closet when I was a child and it took me 3 years to figure out. That began my art journey. Cameras took me to art museums. Went to the Andy Warhol Museum and The Mattress Factory in Pittsburgh and got introduced to the silkscreen process and modern art. Ever since it has been me figuring out to crawl. I spend 2 years burning screens unsuccessful in my poorly lit garage before moving to Columbus and finding a proper space to create.
Not only can I crawl but I can walk and even run. The silkscreen process has been an exciting journey. I mainly print photos from a 35mm camera or SX-70 Polaroid camera. The process is what is exciting to me. I love how time consuming it is to print cyan, magenta, yellow, and black to form any image. I love the simple and colorful. I try to make things that people would actually want to hang in their home. I try to make things that evoke a thought and a memory with the goal of that to be pleasant or happy.
