ABOUT DOT GOODWIN
Dot Goodwin cites her hands as her favorite tool, savoring the sensation of carving surfaces or building multi-level images for casting. Her strong sense of symmetry and attention to detail are features that stand out in her work, lending themselves to the creation of iconic images and traditional symbols of institutions and South Carolina in her commercial pieces.
Dot often incorporates Native American imagery in her personal pieces, feeling a deep connection to the people and their spiritual practices. Images of horses and wings are recurring icons throughout her work.
As an active member in the arts community, Dot tirelessly volunteers her time to support others in their artist pursuits. She has spoken to the local Artist Association on numerous occasions, conducts workshops at Springbank Retreat Center and served as Art Director for the Downtown Camden Guild, spearheading many efforts to bring local artists and their art to beautify the town. She has also sat on the Arts Steering Committee for Pinckney Elementary School, an ABC Pilot School for the arts at Fort Jackson, SC since 1995.
Today, Dot delights in noticing symmetry and balance in her life coming full circle.
