Hi, my name is Winifred.
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.
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.
