His works have been shown in more than fifty solo exhibitions in galleries and museums from coast to coast, including prominent galleries in Chicago, Minneapolis, New York City, Philadelphia, St. Louis, Washington DC. Past one-man museum exhibitions include Erie Art Museum, Evansville Museum of Art, Georgia Museum of Art, Quick Center for the Arts, The Rockwell Museum, Wildling Art Museum, Westmoreland Museum of American Art.

Paquette earned his MFA in Painting on a full fellowship at Southern Illinois University, Edwardsville, and a BFA degree in Painting from Bemidji State University (graduating summa cum laude).

Paquette paintings have been commissioned by Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis, Queen Mary II, and the state governments of Minnesota, Montana, Maine.
