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 paintings.  I have created many commissioned portraits and a variety of still life paintings available for sale.

Zoom Meeting in New Cool New Glasses – Oil Painting 11×14 by Winifred Whitfield

I admired the new eye glasses while on Zoom and wanted to take a closer look. She sent me a selfie. Every time I saw it in my flies I thought it an interesting reference to paint – and so I did. The painting is so reflective of the times we live in and of course the “readers” are very cute!
