Heather Goodwind was born in Scranton, Pennsylvania in 1973, and grew up between Berkeley, California and Key West, Florida.
She graduated from Portland State University with a BA in Sculpture and co-founded Gallery 214 in Portland’s Old Town district in 1996. She moved to Brooklyn soon after and began sculpting with found materials. This was also the beginning of her small format drawings in books, which now number over 600 works.
Heather’s artistic practice follows a disciplined choronological order. She creates works in series, each work somehow related to the previous but potent enough to function individually. Series 20 #44 (Seed) is one such work that leaves the interpretation solely to the viewer.
