ABOUT THE ARTIST
Gary Hodges is passionate about animals and this clearly shines through his intricate and personal drawings. It shows in his every day life,
whether in befriending a dog on the street, stroking rescued wolves, touching a wild grey whale or cradling an orphaned orang-utan. It is also
transparent in his commitment to helping preserve wildlife.
Throughout his career he has actively supported charities that have captured his imagination and touched his heart, such as Greenpeace. His first
major solo exhibition in the Mall Galleries raised £90,000 for The Born Free Foundation and the Environmental Investigation Agency (EIA), 100% of
all sales. "I cant imagine making a living from drawing wildlife and not giving something back says Gary, almost apologetically. So far he has
raised well over half a million pounds for wildlife from the sale of his originals and limited edition prints.
