artist Marna Schindler. Order a custom pet portrait today!
After earning a fine arts degree from San Diego State
University, Marna worked as a graphic designer and
illustrator for over 15 years. Now a full-time painter, Marna
finds inspiration daily from her own fabulous feline Hopper,
as well as from her travels across the colorful southwest.
Combining her deep affection for animals and art, Marna
“fell into” painting pet portraits a few years ago, when a
painting for a friend garnered an overwhelming response
(“Happy Hank”, above).  Marna delights in capturing the
spirit of her subjects using vivid color and a unique
expressive style.  As of 2008, Marna is honored to have
already painted over 100 four-legged friends.  A
percentage of the proceeds from Marna’s pet portraits is
donated yearly to non-profit organizations and shelters
benefiting animals.  Marna currently lives and paints out of
her studio in downtown San Diego, California.

To inquire about commissioning an original pet portrait by
Marna featuring your own best friend, visit
Meet Lola, escape artist extraordinaire
and feline friend to Jodi and Doug of
Philadelphia, PA. Rumor has it that Lola
is on a never-ending jail break mission,
constantly looking for ways to sneak
out of the house. To immortalize her
Houdini-esque qualities, Jodi wanted a
painting that captured Lola's
mischievous spirit and quest for the
outdoors. Can you see that devious
sparkle in Lola's eye as she plots her
next escape?

OMG I love it! She is so high strung and a pain; which is why I love it so.  You will some day be my personal
family artist. I love the website. My animals are famous because of you. - Jodi
