Thanks to a very perceptive mother, Mary Ann Schindler began taking art instruction in grammar school. After graduating college with a degree in art and creative writing, she worked as an editor, commercial artist, art director, and eventually went into business for herself in 1982.  Her clients included professional associations, non-profits, retail businesses, telecommunications corporations, and the hospitality industry.


Since moving from the Washington, DC metro area to the Eastern Shore in 1999, she has gradually returned to non-commercial art on a full time basis. She has continued formal study, usually in the form of experimental workshops. She is a participating member of 447 Studios and Gallery, and of Main Street Gallery in Cambridge, as well as Turtle Cove Mosaics in St. Michaels, MD.

"Having spent many years in the commercial art world, I am energized by once again creating work for a more intimate demographic. I aspire to address the interior landscape, from its serenity and beauty to its anger and disturbance. The myths and stories we tell ourselves, both consciously and subconsciously, find their way into my art.


 I work in acrylic, watercolor, oil pastel, pencil, textural medium, mosaic, found and created objects, to make  paintings, dimensional art and site specific installations. With my acrylic pours, I manipulate pure paint to create an image independent of the usual canvas or board anchorage. Current explorations involve my photographs printed on canvas and transformed or exaggerated by the application of paint.


The paint, glass, found objects, and indeed all materials are wondrous to me in and of themselves. Each contains its own mystery. I seek use and combine them to communicate ideas, emotion, and the paradox, struggle, energy and joy inherent in an examined life."
