About Me


I'M Florine Duffield


I call myself a portrait artist

In the 2nd grade, I decided to work in the arts and stuck with it. My professional life is divided between photography and painting. It is my life’s work to make people feel good about themselves. That has always been easy for me - through my paintings and photography. They say the most important legacy one can leave behind is how you make others feel. I aim to spread wisdom, knowledge, encouragement, and positive feelings to all I encounter.

It is important for me to know the purpose of your portrait. What are you trying to say about yourself? This helps enormously in getting your message out into the world. When painting portraits in oils, I work from great photographs.  I create original paintings of loved ones who have passed.  

I began my education at Queens College and New York University, followed by Elkins Institute in Dallas and the Arvon Foundation in England. My career began as a model, actress and singer in New York City.  Owned and operated commercial photography and fine art studios in Dallas, New York City, Arizona, and England.
