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.
Using a highly disciplined as well as intuitive method of art-making, Heather produces mesmerizing visuals that instantly send the viewers into a contemplative state. The Day The Sun Fell Into The Sea (Series 14 #14) invokes both a childish imagination and an elderly philosophical questioning at the same time.
