Wendy paints intuitively and spontaneously in live performance speed-painting with perceptive, powerful and often abstract prophetic images in vibrant expressions of colour and emotion. During her art career, Wendy has painted and exhibited around the world, including New York, San Francisco, Florence, Indonesia, New Zealand, and Parliament House, Canberra. Wendy is a featured artist on the Australian television program ‘Colour In Your Life’ (2013).

Wendy is dedicated to releasing spiritually powerful art into our communities and culture. Leading DaySpring Church creative arts worship team (2006-2014) birthed a passion to motivate and inspire a myriad of intuitive artists. Wendy achieves this through facilitating Prophetic Art Workshops, teaching key transforming principles that launch people into their destiny and promoting Prophetic Art Australia, a networking group that connects worship artists.

Wendy Manzo is the author of ‘The Prophetic Artist’ and ‘Diamonds on the Water’.

The name Manzo has been synonymous with fine diamond jewellery since Manzo Diamonds and Park Lane Jewellers were established in 1952. Wendy Manzo is regarded as one of Australia’s top jewellery designers. As the master-designer, diamond grader and gemmologist at Wendy Manzo Diamonds, formerly at the Hilton (1985-1991) and Piccadilly (1991-2011) in Pitt Street, Sydney, Wendy continues to create beautiful bespoke jewellery of superior quality.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row type=”full_width_section”][vc_column width=”1/1″][minti_divider margin=”0″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row text_align=”center” top_padding=”40″ bottom_padding=”40″ class=”icons”][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text][minti_icon icon=”fa-book” color=”#888888″ size=”21px” margin=”0px 0px 0px 0px”][minti_icon icon=”fa-facebook” color=”#888888″ size=”21px” margin=”0px 0px 0px 0px”][minti_icon icon=”fa-pinterest” color=”#888888″ size=”21px” margin=”0px 0px 0px 0px”][minti_icon icon=”fa-instagram” color=”#888888″ size=”21px” margin=”0px 0px 0px 0px”][minti_icon icon=”fa-twitter” color=”#888888″ size=”21px” margin=”0px 0px 0px 0px”][minti_icon icon=”fa-youtube” color=”#888888″ size=”21px” margin=”0px 0px 0px 0px”][/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row type=”full_width_section”][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_raw_html]JTVCaW5zdGFncmFtLWZlZWQlNUQ=[/vc_raw_html][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row top_padding=”100″ bottom_padding=”100″][vc_column width=”1/3″][minti_headline type=”h3″ size=”fontsize-l” weight=”fontweight-700″ transform=”transform-uppercase” align=”align-left”]Artist’s Statement[/minti_headline][minti_divider style=”6″ margin=”0″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]I believe art shapes every facet of our world and humanity thrives in creative atmospheres. I create art to bring harmony, inspiration, encouragement and strength into the atmosphere, with art as a spiritual connection between the viewer and God.

When painting live, I begin without preconceived ideas and allow the creative process to be spontaneously led by the Spirit. I work quickly on stage with music and allow the story of the art to unfold without the interference of thinking.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]In the studio, I use a process of successive layering, creating surface texture and alternating between harmonious and contrasting colours. I include ideas and images conceived in more introspective times. There is always a hidden thread and a mystery in each painting for those with eyes to see, as iconic symbols often create new meanings.

I aim for my art to be deeply personal for the viewer. By bringing the creation of the artwork into public spaces, the viewer is invited into the creative process and can internalise the experience as the story unfolds. I aim for connection of body, mind and spirit. I aim for art that impacts.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row bg_color=”#fafafa” top_padding=”100″ bottom_padding=”100″][vc_column width=”1/1″][minti_headline type=”h3″ size=”fontsize-l” weight=”fontweight-700″ transform=”transform-uppercase”]Exhibitions & Performances[/minti_headline][minti_divider style=”6″ margin=”0 auto 40px auto”][minti_carousel nav=”false” grabicon=”true”][minti_box padding=”20px 20px 20px 20px” align=”align-left”]2016 December, ‘Hope of the World’, Kids At Heart Australia mission, Bali, Indonesia

Her paintings draw the audience into a divine encounter as the artwork evolves on the canvas on stage. She has inspired thousands of people in a closer intimate relationship with God through art that carries a personal message directly to their heart and spirit.

As a church, DaySpring has intentionally pursued what role art plays within the worship service. Wendy made ground-breaking contributions with her willingness to surrender to the Spirit with live painting during the church service, and in 2006 we asked her to lead our creative arts team. Her skills, experience, and personal qualities put her in the unique position of being able to facilitate community building amongst creative people, as well as mentoring individual artists. She has an exceptional way of engaging participants from all walks of life, and demystifying the creative process of producing art. She leads the way in changing many people’s perception of their own artistic abilities and awakens their supernatural creativity.

David and Narelle Crabtree, DaySpring Church, Sydney[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]I encourage anyone, from the beginner to the advanced artist, the discontented, the frustrated, those who know there is so much more within, and the ones wanting to push the boundaries of limitation, to embark on this beautiful journey with prophetic artist Wendy Manzo.

When Gateway invited Wendy to do a prophetic art workshop with our church, I really wasn’t sure what to expect or what would unfold, but as it turned out, the two-day workshop with Wendy and Andy was more than we hoped for or even imagined. There was much laughter, some tears, and moments of awe as different ones stood back and admired the art that had just come from their very own hands and heart. Souls were enlightened, hearts were healed, relationships built and gifts unlocked. I highly encourage you to take this journey, I am quite sure you will never regret it and it could just be the breakthrough you have always been looking for.

Paul and Tracey Tothill, Gateway Church, Adelaide[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]I’ve always been passionate about the arts playing a major role in church to make her contemporary and relevant to the current world. At C3 Church we have a thriving Creative Ministry school and I am committed to developing leaders who can spread the vision of the hope of the world, see the lost saved and the power of the Holy Spirit revealed. Wendy Manzo is one such leader. Wendy graduated CCC Ministry Training college in 1990 and ever since has been an effective minister for Christ, especially through her art.

Wendy served our Oxford Falls Grammar School as P&C President (2005-2010) and the school community flourished under her leadership. She has a compassionate, servant-hearted, encouraging approach and an understanding of raising people to excel in their own gifts. Wendy is committed to reviving the arts in ministry.

Dr Phil Pringle, C3 Church, Sydney[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]There is a new prophetic voice being released and it is Wendy’s artistic voice, the voice of her prophetic art. Her colors are vivid, her strokes detailed and lush, but there is something else – there is The Presence of The One for whom she paints – Emmanuel, God with us. The first piece of Wendy’s I ever saw was ‘Glory over the Lake’ and I was instantly taken into an experience with the Lord. I entered that painting, I found myself sitting on the lake, under the Glory and the Lord Himself danced over me. I was in such wonder that He would dance around me as I sat there. Then He said to me, “Do not be amazed that I dance like this over you, because this is how I am every minute of the day and night. I am always dancing and singing over you and around you.” It is my prayer that His Presence will continue to grow stronger and stronger in Wendy, in her artwork and in every person who takes in what she does. Thank you Wendy, I have been radically blessed by what you do.
