My Biography

Hi, my name is Winifred.

I am commissioned to provide the following services: Portraits, in oil and digitally painted, and find art paintings.

I have  closed my online STORE where I sold digital tutorials and online workshops. Essentially, I no longer teach digital art. I focus exclusively on oil painting, and I continue to create digitally enhanced portraits and other digital products for clients.

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.

Oil Paintings

With the guidance of friends a “home gallery” was created.  It’s pretty fun to live in a gallery. Eighty six paintings are currently on my walls and growing! Take a look – click here:

My days are filled with oil painting, primarily portraits and still life paintings. Click Here to access my Blog,  and scroll through to see examples of my still life and portrait paintings.  I have created many commissioned portraits and a variety of still lifes.
