Gary Hodges is the UK’s best selling and most collectable pencil artist. He has sold over 110,000 personally signed and numbered prints from 132 limited editions. Only 12 of these editions are still available, the other 113 having sold out. The huge demand for Gary’s prints has led to a lucrative secondary market rewarding collectors with more than just the sheer beauty of his drawings.
Greenpeace published his first print in 1987 in an edition of 850 copies which sold for £8.50 each. In recent years that same print “Green Turtle” has changed hands for up to an incredible £3,500.00!
The many accolades given during his 37 year career include the “Oscars” of the published art world, the “Best selling Artist of the Year” and also “Best selling images by a living artist” (twice) all awarded by the Fine Art Trade Guild. Other previous winners include Rolf Harris, Jack Vettriano and David Shepherd.
His many thousands of admirers include Virginia McKenna, Martina Navratilova, Pam St Clement, Kirstin Davis and Rula Lenska.
Gary’s massive popularity has enabled him to follow his heart and support charities dear to him. Through his art almost one million pounds has been given back via many charities to protect the wildlife he feels so passionate towards.
