My name is Marna Schindler, and I am grateful to have been
asked to paint so many beloved dogs and cats. I have always
been a big fan of animals, and to be able to paint them on a
daily basis is truly a privilege. With a degree in graphic design
from SDSU & about 20 years illustration experience, I paint
full-time, creating original pet portraits as well as paintings for
art shows and galleries. I live & work in the East Village area of
San Diego, CA with my feline muses and assistants, Hopper &
Natasha. To see what else I've been up to, check out the page
"a glimpse in the life". To find out about upcoming shows,
check out the page "news & events".
I would be honored to paint your fabulous furry kid, to
celebrate him in a unique & whimsical way, and to create a
painting which will help you remember him always with a smile.
Getting started with your own special painting is simple, just
shoot me an email for more information. You can also read
more by visiting my "How It's Done" and FAQs pages.
Contact me about creating your own original pet portrait of
your special little one. I am happy to send along my pricelist &
the current schedule, and all the details to get started on your
muttsterpiece or catstravaganza!

If you are involved with a nonprofit animal group you'd like me to know about, I'd love to hear from you.
