She has received degrees in architecture from Washington University and Yale University. Her award-winning work has been widely published and exhibited. She also lectures and gives workshops nationally and internationally. For over 26 years, she taught architectural design at Florida A&M University.
Professor Goodwin’s textile art is inspired by aerial views of real and imaginary landscapes and cities. Her complex compositions use both traditional quilting techniques and innovative digital technology to illustrate landscapes and narrate human testimony, narratives that express the profound relationship between people and places.
