Paul Hoelscher is a native Minnesotan and earned a bachelors degree in art and economics from St. John's University in Collegeville, Minnesota.

He moved to Oregon with his wife in 1995 and settled in Baker City with his growing family in 2002. He is a full-time artist and art instructor, painting from home and teaching through his community art center and private consultation. Paul almost always carries a sketchbook to make notes and detailed drawings of fleeting moments with the landscape, people and animals.

His finished paintings and drawings are intended to be quiet reminders for everyone of how really wonderful life is when we take a moment to notice.
