Born in Hartford, Connecticut, Winifred maintains studios in Los Angeles and the California high desert.
She studied painting, drawing, photography, and sculpture at California State University Long Beach, University of California Los Angeles, and Art Center Pasadena. She is the recipient of two Vermont Studio Center residencies.
Her current work combines figurative and abstraction, often juxtaposed with black and white elements.
Winifred has exhibited throughout California including the UCLA Kerckhoff Gallery, Coagula Curatorial, La Luz de Jesus, i-5 Gallery, Crussell Fine Arts, Red Dot Gallery, LA ArtCore, 29 Palms Art Gallery, and the Palm Springs Art Museum.
She is represented in many private collections in the U.S., Canada, France, and the U.K.
“Wini Brewer is, in the tradition of Annie Oakley and Louise Nevelson, an American straight shooter who assembles poetry on a wall.”
