Woodard has spent much of her working life retouching artwork and stencil making for a leading Fine Art publisher. It was as she approached fifty that she made the decision to try and make art that was her own. To stop being the ‘backing singer’ and see what she could do.
Woodard’s pieces do not rely on superficially attractive subject matter but is more concerned with the subtle interplay of people and their relationship to others. Her sculptures are of ordinarily people, not handsome, and sometimes overweight.
