Title-image---Biography-Brintle-headshot-sm

Born and raised in Haiti, Brintle’s colorful style reflects her native land. Her approach to painting is varied and reflects her feelings at the moment. As a full-time self-taught artist, it is her rich culture which guide her creative muse. She is fascinated by the history of Haiti and many of her artworks reflect that passion. 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 and pages of books, magazines, and publications. She belongs to several art organizations and exhibits internationally. 

Brintle is an inductee in the Haitian Roundtable 1804 list of Haitian-American Changemakers.  She is also the president of From Here to Haiti, Ltd. (FHTH), an all-volunteer public charity repairing churches and their related structures in Haiti since the earthquake of 2010 and donates most of her artworks’ proceeds FHTH.
