I am Wendy Manzo


Wendy Manzo is an Australian prophetic artist, teacher, and writer.

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.

Artist’s Statement

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.

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.
