She continues to organize and manage the letterpress studio which houses the Globe Collection at MICA and maintains the Dolphin Press & Print’s collection of fine art prints.
In 2011, Schindall spent a portion of the summer in Fabriano, Italy researching bookbinding, papermaking, and etching with Georgio Pellegrini of the Museo della Carta e della Filigrana and worked hands on with Master Papermaker Luigi Mecella, Master Bookbinder and owner of Officina Libris, Guiseppe Baldinelli and Master Printer Roberto Stelluti.
Schindall has a methodical, yet free and experimental studio practice and her work has earned several scholarships and she exhibits internationally and throughout Baltimore. She is also devoted to her writing practice and has produced four limited edition books, all written, designed, hand printed and bound by the artist. Her book Proof is in the collection of Artist Books in the Decker Library at the Maryland Institute College of Art.
