Born in 1954 in south London, UK, Gary Hodges displayed an early interest in art which gained him school qualifications, but he left at the age of 16. His style and highly developed artistic techniques are essentially self-taught. In the last twenty years he has published 120 limited editions from his pencil drawings, of which 112 have sold out. Through his art over half a million pounds has been raised for charity.
Gary’s drawings have given pleasure to many thousands of collectors including celebrities such as Martina Navratilova, Michaela Strachan, Nigel Marven, Sally Gunnell and Rula Lenska. He has exhibited countless times and his work has reached record prices at the famous Christies auction house. It is also held in collections including the Nature in Art Museum in Gloucester, UK and the Government Art Collection (UK). His artistry has been the subject of three film documentaries, two televised. He has received many awards from his peers and his art was voted the “Visitors’ Choice” at the Society of Wildlife Artists Exhibition 2007, London, out of over 400 exhibits.
