|Spencer Hodge was born in 1943, and attended the Hastings School of Art and Royal West of England Academy. After a formal and academic art training he spent six years illustrating books and teaching material for the Medical Research Council. After leaving England, Spencer Hodge travelled widely, undertaking long field trips for international conservation organisations such as the World Wide Fund for Nature.
Spencer Hodge has acquired a reputation as one of the finest wildlife artists this century, and he counts HRH The Duke of Edinburgh and HSH Prince Rainier amongst his many admirers. His work is exhibited throughout Europe and America and over 40 of his limited edition prints have been published. The many hundreds of hours spent studying wild animals and birds in their natural habitat are truly reflected in the precision and realism of his dramatic work.
