Teaching is my life, paired with painting and moving through the world creatively. Working with other painters to help them identify, refine, and express their version of beautifully different or compelling is one the passions I hold most dear. As a self-taught artist of 18 years, I came about this journey of art through unique circumstances and found that it held great potential for helping me learn to connect and express how I feel about my human experiences through the incredible combination of paint, pigment, and paper.

When I knew I needed a style I didn’t have an academic program, professor, or mentor to help me understand how to develop that, so I turned inward and committed a year to studying and defining what gives an artist their ‘style.’ That was the most important year of my life professionally because it equipped me with understanding the head space, skills, and heart connection that every artist needs to curate their own visual language and use it to express a narrative of their choice.

online art class painting by Ardith Goodwin

My framework is all about painting beautifully imperfect abstractions and figurative works in mixed media and acrylic with an emphasis on dynamic movement, complex systems, and a side of unpredictability. My art mirrors my life, how I see the energy around all of us, how we connect and move within spaces with others, and how the inner spirit of diversity and variety matter deeply. I build wall experiences through my art for a viewer because I want them to not simply see a painting on a wall, I want to impact their human heart through how I use paint, pigment, and story.

With a Master’s in Education, I have taught thousands of adult painters over the past decade by helping them improve their skillsets and identify the framework that is unique to them. I have a unique ability to help painters articulate what their intentions and goals are and then form the action steps they need to grow their skills, business sense, and professional scope for their careers. 

I simply LOVE teaching and working with other working artists, it is part of the deep joy I have about being a painter and teacher.

My works have been collected globally and I have been in multiple solo and collaborative shows as well as publications. What I am most proud of though, finding a way to come off complete disability and build an amazingly successful Corporation as a Solo Creative Entrepreneur.  I am a wild creative at heart and a sharp businesswoman, I teach both as a mentor.
