Charles L. Peterson is an American artist born in 1927 who is primarily known for his mastery of watercolor paintings (The Memories Collection) and for prestigious maritime artwork (The Maritime Collection). As one of the leading artists in the limited edition print industry, and as a maritime artist with a world class reputation, his artwork is highly regarded by the private collector, art galleries, and public museums. Although Peterson is now officially retired from the limited edition print industry, he is still full of enthusiasm and energy and continues to paint most every day, producing paintings, drawings, and miniatures, designing work specifically for reproduction, and creating specific works of art that have been commissioned by private or corporate interests.
