Mira Chendler was born in Bucharest in 1950. She attended the music school George Enescu; she continued her studies at the Conservatorium Ciprian Porumbescu from which she graduated as a violin major.
In 1976 she emigrated to Israel where she worked in various orchestras. In 1978 she moved to the Netherlands where she obtained a position as violinist with the Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra in Amsterdam, a position she still holds today.
For the last 15 years, Mira Chendler has extended her artistic activities to include painting, etching and most recently, animation film making. Her animation films have been selected for numerous international film festivals. The film "Mr. Atse in Pursuit of an Ascending Career" was awarded first prize at the Prometheus Film Festival 2011.
All Ms Chendler's films are made in collaboration with Hein van Dijk, who is responsible not only for the original music score, but also for the editing.
