Canadian Society of Marine Artists Nautical Artist

Peter Rindlisbacher was born in Windsor, Ontario. Son of a boat builder and a commercial artist, he developed an intense early passion for everything nautical, becoming a racing sailor, model builder and historical naval re-enactor. In the midst of obtaining a Ph.D. in Psychology in the 1980's, his marine art career developed into its present full time status. Peter was elected a member of the Canadian Society of Marine Artists in 2006.

His paintings are mainly in oils and generally feature Great Lakes and War of 1812 subjects. Museums and historic sites in the U.S. and Canada have purchased many of his paintings, while print editions of his work are sold as fundraisers for historic groups. He enters few shows, preferring private commissions instead, largely to the U.S. market. His images have appeared on book and magazine covers, and in video and Public Television productions such as The History Channel and National Geographic.

His international reputation as an artist of the War 1812 era is celebrated in his new book, War of 1812: The Marine Art of Peter Rindlisbacher.
