An animal's eyes have
the power to speak a
great language.
~ Martin Buber
   "Our indifference or cruelty towards fellow creatures of this world sooner or later
affects the treatment we mete out to other human beings. We have only one heart,
and the same wretchedness which leads us to mistreat an animal will not be long in
showing itself in our relationships with other people. Every act of cruelty towards
any creature is ‘contrary to human dignity
."    Pope Francis

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.
