His artistic production is composed of both natural and urban landscapes, religious scenes and portraits, but it is mainly on the representation of the natives of America, which focuses his attention. Her favourite subjects are females who love to paint in moments of everyday life, and in moments of reflection. Through his works Winborg wants to focus the attention of the viewer, initially attracted by the figure as a whole, on the exploration of every single inch of the composition, which objectively presents a very interesting and rich texture able to arouse emotions, in addition to the very rich palette, also for the use of mellow color, for the drafting of which he helps himself with spatulas and knives.
