Patricia Van Den Nieuwenhuijzen (Manzitti)

"I have been painting since I was 18 months old. I am a self-taught artist who is deeply in love with all that God has created, that which is tangible and that which I see through the eyes of inspiration. I also teach Mathematics and Statistics at University. Despite mathematics, art is my true love.”

Patricia Manzitti was born and raised in Australia to Italian parents. A self-taught artist, over the years she has developed her artistic skills through a variety of mediums, including acrylics, pastels, oil, and charcoal but she prefers oil.

Her use of color gives life to her works as also a spirit of joy and love. Patricia has a particular and innate predisposition to tonal composure and overall vision. Her works allow a glimpse into her exclusive style that is original and valid in the artistic world.

Patricia paints to tell her relationship with nature and the world that inspires her, and a source of pleasant enchantment for the soul and source of infinite sensitivity. Through every one of her paintings there is never a complete detachment from reality; instead, she successfully bridges that which is transcendent and surreal with that which is real. In short, an integration of vision that touches the soul.
