About the Artist

Hi, my name is Randy Wilhelm and I was born and raised in Sandpoint, Idaho. As you can see by my paintings and their stories, I have strong ties to Sandpoint. While I have moved away many times, I have always found my way back to the lakes and mountains I grew up exploring. These are not just random paintings  to me, each one reminds me of different times in my life.

Currently I am in my 20th year of teaching art and desktop publishing at Lake Pend Oreille High School, an alternative high school here in Sandpoint. I love my job and enjoy the students very much. Interestingly, I teach in the same classroom where I attended third grade. The school is just down the street from the house I grew up in. So it is fair to say that in the 35  years since my high school graduation, I have made it one block from home. 🙂
Besides teaching I have owned and operated a graphics business, Left Field Productions for almost two decades.

During the Summer you’ll find me spending my free time gardening and kayaking and in the Winter I’ll be up at Schweitzer Mountain Resort.

If you’d like more information about me or just curious friend me on Facebook. Thanks for taking the time to check out my website. RW
