Winkler has lived out West for nearly two decades and her paintings have focused predominantly on its expansive nature and regional geology.

Her style is unique to the landscape genre. She masks off the individual sections and treats each area to several layers of paint with a variety of “erosion” techniques between layers. Her vision is that the paint addition and subtraction process mimics erosion processes in landscape geology.

Using salt, water, blown air, non toxic solvents and a palm sander in a forceful, but directed, manner she erodes the painting to create a naturalistic landscape composed largely of abstract geological textures.
