Woodley’s Art in the Library
Throughout August, Art in the Library at Woodley features photography from Stephanie Woods, who has a fondness for taking shots of nature. Whatever the weather she is out with her camera trying to take the perfect picture. Also on display are felt sculptures by artist Sarah Hill. Her series of brightly coloured animal characters all seem to come alive with different personalities.

I have been taking pictures for as long as I can remember and have always enjoyed it. In January 2013 I bought myself a Nikon p510 coolpix bridge camera hoping to expand on my photographic experience; I wanted something more than a compact and found the perfect partner in my Nikon. I am strictly an amateur however. I enjoy going for walks with my camera and taking pictures of things that just catch my eye.
I have a certain fondness for taking shots of nature as I seem to be able to capture pictures that surprise me and others. I enjoy taking wildlife pictures as you may be able to see from the grouse, horses and dragonfly up on display. I love taking pictures of landscapes and whatever the weather I’m out with my camera trying to take the perfect picture.
Felting Sculptor, Artisan Baker, Professional Patisserie Chef specialising in Celebration Cakes. I like to create objects from raw material, keeping old crafts alive from embroidery to being an Artisan Baker; I have a desire to create things from natural sources.
Throughout August work will be on display by local artist Pam Roper. Pam started painting water colours when she retired and she is now a member of the Wokingham Art Society. Pam likes to paint subjects associated with nature, including flowers, trees, birds and scenes from her holiday destinations.
