Goodie is an artist and curator interested in relationships between people, spaces and objects in suburban and metropolitan landscapes, considering themes such as friendship and orientation. Their practise predominantly involves painting, installation, murals, writing and performance. By fabricating fictional architectures and characters, or adjusting existing architectures, they explore how public and private spaces hold objects and bodies. Furthermore, how the spaces we create reflect the values we live by and relate to slippery notions of identity, sexuality and gender.

Goodie was born in California and raised in Canberra, moving to Melbourne (Naarm) in 2014, where they live, work and love now. Goodie has exhibited and painted walls extensively throughout Australia and overseas, and has collaborated on projects with groups such as the Collingwood Arts Precinct, Juddy Roller, the Australian National University and the Abbotsford Convent. They completed a Bachelor of Fine Art at the Victorian College of the Arts in 2016. They recently completed a residency in New York at CON Artists Collective, LES Manhattan.
