Winifred Bromhall was born in Walsall, Staffordshire, England and was educated at Queen Mary's School, Walsall Art School and Birmingham University. Her family immigrated to the United States in 1924. She worked for a while at the Children's Art Center in Boston and in the art department of a New York settlement house before illustrating full time.
She illustrated her first children's book, Zodiac Town: The Rhymes of Amos and Ann, by Nancy Byrd Turner in 1921. She continued to illustrate for other authors until 1945, when she began writing and illustrating her own books. Her first self- illustrated book was Johanna Arrives (1945).
