An artist since youth...Chris Goodwin’s passion for creating has been a life
journey. From calligraphy, photography, ceramics, watercolor, acrylic, &
Sumi’e painting to her current passion welded steel sculpture. No medium has
been beyond her reach nor untouched by her creative interest. She says “Art
is not what I do...it is who I am!”

Her education in Fine Art led her to her niche as a designer. She comes to
Long Beach, WA from Portland, OR where she owned a freelance graphic
design business for the past 15 years. For her “Designing something from
nothing was the most challenging and the most rewarding. It takes a lot of
listening to create an image from someone else’s imagination.” Her freelance
work & business also included print brokering, marketing/advertising
consulting, art gallery management, promotional event planning, art
instruction and artist mentoring.

Today she produces ‘art from her own heart’. Using subjects she loves as her
inspiration she creates delectable steel sculptures from found materials and
from her own original designs.

Collecting the ‘trash or treasure’ materials such as mild steel, stainless steel,
wood, glass, copper, & brass used for accent in her work has earned her the
affectionate title of “Dumpster Diva”.

Her art studio is located in Long Beach WA. Her fabrication studio is located
in Astoria, Oregon at Tongue Point. Studio tours are available by
appointment.
