Hi, my name is Winifred.

WW 2015

I am commissioned to provide the following services: photography, digital painting, and traditional portrait oils paintings and I paint still life paintings in oils as well. 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,  and scroll down to see examples of my oil paintings.  I have created many commissioned portraits and a variety of still life paintings available for sale.
