Glenna Goodacre was born in Lubbock, Texas.  Perhaps best known for her Southwestern Native American subjects and children she says, “I was always drawing -- and always people.  All my friends would be drawing horses and animals, and I always drew people.  I did my first painting when I was ten or eleven.”  Faces and figures continue to be her preferred subjects, but she has shifted emphasis in her career from drawing and painting to sculpture.


 

Glenna Goodacre’s most well known sculpture is the Vietnam Women’s Memorial located in the Constitutional Garden, Washington DC.
