Meet An Artist

On this Treehouse Thursday we want to introduce you to Treehouse’s “resident artist” Michael Goodwin. Michael is the husband of our Founding Director Lynne Goodwin and so has been volunteered and assigned to help with many, many projects over the years. He did all the art for our American, Utah, and our soon to be opened World Floor Maps, and spent months painting all the murals and many of the animals for the beautiful “Walk in the Woods” exhibit. Whenever Treehouse walls or exhibits get dinged up, Michael is there to touch it up and keep us looking new. And, Michael is a science fan. He especially loves drawing dinosaurs, and if you like dinos, too, you’ll want to download his coloring page.
