In 1961, he was recruited by Liberty & Co in London as a design consultant, and ultimately their design director.
Born in Ireland, David Woodlock is most closely associated with a school of artists working in Liverpool. He was a founding member, and later served as president, of the Liver Sketching Club. He exhibited at the Royal Academy of Arts, Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours, the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists, the Royal Manchester Institution and the Royal Scottish Academy.
