Life and work

Alison Goodwin was born in Montreal in 1959 she attended the Maine College of Art.[2]

Goodwin's piece, Saint Fisherman, was featured in Maine Home and Design in 2008. The painting, which features a fisherman from Maine in a boat with a halo, giving the fisherman the look of a saint.[3] In 2009, Goodwin's work was the focus of an article in The Gettysburg Review by Shannon Egan. Egan advises the viewer of Goodwin's work to view it as not "unsophisticated and unknowing" due to the "skewed perspective" that Goodwin delivers in her work. Egan suggests Paul Gauguin, Henri Matisse, and Vincent van Gogh as artistic influences on Goodwin during that time.[4]

In 2011, Goodwin took a break from painting and created a series of charcoal drawings on paper. The works created, which were exhibited in Burlington, Vermont, were abstract in execution and "non-representational drawings informed by geometric and amoeba-like shapes often in repetition." She is represented by Greenhut Galleries.[2]
