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 kathy.signorino@oac.ohio.gov or 614-728-6140.

JOHN CHRISTENSEN – BIO
John Christensen is an artist working in Austin, Texas. Born in New York City, he received degrees in Visual and Environmental Studies – and art – from Harvard and the University of Texas. Before 1990, he developed a body of site-sensitive work in rural landscapes of New York, Georgia and Texas. Since 1990, he has focused that sensibility on projects for the theater and the public place. He has created, in collaborations with choreographers, interactive props and theatrical environments for 30 productions presented in the Americas, Europe, Asia and Australia. He has designed and built commercial spaces, and, unique and production furniture. Working in a variety of media he has exhibited around the country. He has completed 20 large scale public and private commissions in Austin, Dallas, Houston, Albuquerque, Miami, Tucson, Portland and Fort Worth. Collaborating with other design professionals he developed infrastructure and interactive art for a municipal park. He brings to any project an unusually broad set of technical and conceptual skills. In recent sculptures and reliefs he has arranged motifs to evoke organic systems – branching rhizomes, biotic colonies, neural networks, wave interference patterns, polymers – clustered works with perceptual associations that make poetic connections between phenomena in disparate fields. He sustains a studio practice, going to his studio most days to make things.

Photo of Debbie Clapper

Though a traditionally trained graphic designer, Debbie is a self-taught artist. Her original drawings and paintings use no rulers, compasses, or masking tape, giving every line a rhythmic, kinetic, and powerful pulse. She began honing her freehand style at nine and hasn’t stopped since. Geometric patterns are a fundamental tenet in Debbie’s work, and she is constantly exploring how to create implied symmetry through asymmetry.

Photo of Katie Clark

Katie Clark is a self-taught Cleveland-based artist working primarily in watercolors.  With an emphasis on highly-detailed paintings that challenge traditional conventions of the medium, her watercolors are crisp, small, precise, and tactile. She channels her lifelong interest in nature with the signature botanical insect paintings for which she is most known.

I work with clay, bronze, and mixed media. Some of my work has its roots in ancient cultures, in which natural atmospheric forces are often personified as gods and goddesses. For example, in ancient Greece, times of day, heavenly bodies, and the earth were embodied in mythical persona. My pieces speak of the beauty and flow of the natural world, and they reflect my concern for and love of the earth.

I am a Columbus-based artist, muralist, teacher, and musician, and for the past few years my creative focus has been on painting with acrylics. My paintings often feature highly realistic details complimented by more abstract elements that represent sound and movement.…

Photo of Kim Covell Maurer

Kim is a Columbus based artist and educator working primarily in the medium of encaustic -a wax based process originating from ancient Greece. Her fascination with encaustics lies in its luminosity, translucence, unpredictability, and stubborn independence. It demands a high amount of physical labor and work that she deeply embraces.

Kim received her BA from the Ohio State University and her MA from the Art Academy in Cincinnati. She has shown locally and in Athens, Cincinnati, and Chicago.  She was awarded a Vermont Studio Center artist residency, the Ohio Art League’s Gateway to the Arts solo exhibition for the John Glenn International Airport  fine art gallery and an FCCFA commission for the permanent collection at the Greater Columbus Convention Center.

When not in the studio or teaching, she prefers a walk in the woods and looking at the sky.
