Heather Goodwind was born in Scranton, Pennsylvania in 1973, and grew up between Berkeley, California and Key West, Florida.
In 1996 she graduated from Portland State University with a BA in Sculpture and co-founded Gallery 214 in Portland's Old Town district.
In 1997 she moved to Brooklyn where she began sculpting with found materials. This was also the beginning of her small format drawings in books which now number over 600 works.
In 2003 she relocated to Buenos Aires, Argentina, where she was based until 2012. There she participated in the Palacio Mexico artists' cooperative from 2005-7.
During 2007-8 she spent 12 months in China, studying calligraphy and watercolor with local and traditional artists, as well as visiting the burgeoning movements in 798 and the artist villages.
She lived from 2010-12 in the Argentine coastal town of Santa Teresita, producing her first series of larger format works on paper.
In 2012 she moved to Portland, Oregon where she continues to live and work.
My drawings represent a constant outpouring of singular impressions: clearly isolated images that capture flashes of emotion, changes in perception or moments of recognition.
I give fleeting thoughts as much consideration as monumental ideas: nothing is more important than anything else and every small thing has its place. This gives the works a cumulative effect: the parts clarify the whole.
