With a name like Rindlisbacher, I’ve learned to answer to every name, except perhaps "Artist". For me becoming an artist is a process, life long or longer, not a designation bestowed by degrees or employment. So it is with trepidations that I enter into this digital world, displaying my work to an unseen audience. You must decide for yourself the merit of what I am creating. I hope you find it sincere. Born and raised in Payson, Utah, I graduated with my MFA degree from Brigham Young University and was thereafter employed at West Texas A&M;University in Canyon, Texas where I’ve happily taught for 30 plus years, being inspired by the creative efforts of thousands of students. My wife Heidi and I are the parents of five grown children and the grandparents of 13. My philosophy of art is to respond with enthusiasm and sensitivity to the world about me. I believe in the spirit and magic that both impels creation and imbues the art work with power to deeply touch us spiritually and intellectually. I believe that art is a labor of heart. As a teacher, I feel as a tour guide saying, "See here, consider there, try this or that." At any age and with whatever range of native skill and ability, everyone can come to see more clearly, feel deeper and gain increased vocabulary and art skills.
