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.  Some of her paintings are infused with complex symbolisms that seem, at first glance, simple but reveal themselves upon further examination.  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 of books and magazines. She belongs to several art organizations and exhibits internationally.  Brintle is an inductee in the 1804 List of Haitian-American Changemakers.

 

Brintle is also the president of From Here to Haiti, Ltd. (FHTH), a non-profit all-volunteer charity doing repair work in Haiti.  Since its formation in the aftermath of the earthquake of 2010, FHTH has completed over 55 projects such as roof installations, latrines, wells, church bells and the like.  Brintle donates most of the proceeds from the sale of her artworks to FHTH.  Visit www.fromheretohaiti.org to learn more.
