Brenden Schindler


Brenden Schindler is a locally grown Dayton OH native; even at a young age he was always seeking to illustrate what his imagination held. Brenden has had the passion to follow his dream of making art his career, and a strong work ethic passed down from his parents. He is always striving to learn something new, which brought him to SAA, where he is finishing his final year. Loving the process of creating something from nothing, he believes in starting by abusing Sharpie markers, and having fun doing it. If he’s not drawing at his desk, he’s refining his skills as a barista at Press Coffee Bar. He says: “Is it too informal to give shout outs? Here’s to the biggest part of my life: my mother Kristin, father David, brother Mason, and all my friends who have encouraged me.”
