Paul Oman

aul Oman was born in the United States in the beautiful state of Wisconsin, where he currently resides with his wife and children. He had a strong interest in art early on in his life, inspired by the landscapes and nature surrounding him on the farm where he spent his childhood years.

At age 10, he began receiving personal instruction in acrylic, oil, and watercolor painting. During this same year, Paul was the Wisconsin elementary youth selected to present an original watercolor to the governor at the State Capitol for Youth Art Month, a significant milestone in his life.  His passion for painting and drawing continued to grow. He studied drawing in college (along with science education, and later, divinity at seminary).

Receiving national and international recognition for his work in watercolor, painting world-wide as a live-audience mural and performance artist, as well as demonstrating, teaching, speaking, and consulting, Paul shares his joy of painting and its power to communicate with people of all ages.

Paul’s mission is to touch lives with life-changing emotion that comes through the sharing of his artistic gifts
