The works of self-taught artist Patricia Brintle are vibrant and remind the viewer of her native Haiti. Brintle’s approach to painting is varied; she does not follow any particular school but rather lets her rich culture guide her creative muse. Her paintings are infused with complex symbolism yet seem, at first glance, simple. Her style is as varied as her subjects but she favors bright and vivid colors as she explores the universality of human emotions in every one of her artworks. Many of Brintle’s works address strong issues such as nuclear disarmament, the Holocaust and the Haitian earthquake. Several of her works are featured in movies and grace the covers and pages of books, magazines, and publications. Brintle belongs to several art organizations and exhibits internationally. Brintle is also the president of From Here to Haiti, Ltd. (FHTH), a non-profit all-volunteer charity doing repair work in Haiti, and donates most of the proceeds from the sale of her artworks to FHTH.
