Throughout her artistic career Winifred McKenzie worked closely with her sister, the printmaker Alison McKenzie. Her works focused on rural subjects such as Waterfall. McKenzie worked in both wood engraving and colour woodcuts. She was first introduced to the colour woodcut in 1923 when she studied under Chica MacNab at the Glasgow School of Art. She also attended the Grosvenor School of Modern Art in London. In 1944 McKenzie joined the Dundee College of Art where she taught wood engraving. She exhibited with the Society of Graver Printers in Colour between 1932 and 1938 and it is likely that this work dates from that period.
