Hi, my name is Winifred.

WW 2015

I am commissioned to provide the following services: photography, digital painting, and traditional oils. I also have a an online STORE where I sell tutorials, online workshops, and oil and digital paintings.  There is also free stuff. Just click the tab for STORE.

My passion is creating fine art and heirloom portraits – portraits intended to pass from generation to generation. These portraits possess a high level of emotional content and beauty. More than seeing an image, I want you to feel it. I want it to convey a story about you. Such are the images which remain with us. Such are the images we feel connected to.

When I paint digitally I use an electronic stylus on a WACOM tablet using Coral Painter software.  I teach workshops and have developed tutorials using this software. The process is much similar to painting, traditionally, except using different tools.

Traditional oils – well, you know what that is.  I love all three methods of creating beautiful images and whichever you desire, I am very happy to create your very special portrait. Please browse the Galleries for the style of photography or painting which interest you. Just to give you a little idea of my background – see below:

Colorful Bouquet

Colorful Bouquet Still Life Oil Painting by Winifred

Colorful Bouquet Still Life 11×12 x in Gessoed Panel

I painted this bouquet a few months ago but have never posted it anywhere.  Do you think there is such a thing as too much color!  I did and planed never to share it. Combining both the color and the paint texture, this painting has the appearance of candy. It is super saturated and shiny. It’s a lot to take in.  It would have been perfect to have posted it on Valentine’s Day. But we’re not too far off and we are upon yet another holiday to celebrate. So, whether I love it or not – here it is. Hope you’ve enjoyed both holidays this week – and also this very colorful painting.
