My Biography

Hi, my name is Winifred.

Winifred Whitfield 2019

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 to 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

My days are now 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.

Venice – Crescent Moon and Sparkling Lights

I found the dramatic patterns of light so beautiful – from the moon to the rippling reflections in the canal. Set against centuries old buildings with a dark silhouetted skyline – that for me is the whole story.
