Artist in oil, watercolour, pencil and other media who said that “as a landscape painter I work directly from the experience of the place, not from an historical sense of art.” He attended West Sussex College of Art, 1955–9; Leeds College of Art for teacher training, 1959–60; and Royal Academy Schools, 1965–8, where Charles Mahoney was a notable teacher. Went on to paint professionally. Was a member of RCamA and took part in numerous mixed exhibitions. Solo shows included Waterhouse, Mall and Alpine Club Galleries; Mostyn Gallery, Llandudno; Oriel and Chapter Arts in Cardiff; and Oriel Bangor. Martin Tinney Gallery, Cardiff, showed new work by Woodford in 2002. Arts Council and National Library of Wales, Aberystwyth, hold examples.
