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.
