Born in Pasadena, California, and raised in the San Francisco Bay area Mr. Woodman began painting at the age of five. "My father and I were on a outing at Lake Merritt when I observed a woman painting the multi-colored hulls of overturned boats at the lake's marina. That afternoon, on our way home, I announced to my father that I had decided to be an artist.

Mr. Woodman began exhibiting his work in galleries when he was twelve. Maintaining paintings in three galleries in San Francisco, during the Sixties his clients were primarily Californians with his works in collections running the length of the state. In the Seventies, after a trip to Europe where he studied, painted, and sold works to collectors in Paris and Athens, he moved his studio to Dallas, Texas.
