Spencer Hodge attended the Hastings School of Art and the Royal West of England Academy.
Leaving England, Spencer Hodge travelled extensively, doing long field trips for international conservation organisations such as the World Wide Fund for Nature. He spent time in India, West Africa and the United Arab Emirates.
Many of these trips ended in successful exhibitions to raise funds for specific conservation projects, for example, a Bahamas National Trust exhibition under the patronage of, and opened by, HRH the Duke of Edinburgh which targeted the rare Bahamian Parrot. Spencer Hodge also organised a fund-raising evening and auction in the Principality of Monaco for the Ranthambhore Foundation, whose aim is to save the Bengali Tiger.
Spencer Hodge has acquired a reputation as one of the finest Wildlife Artists. His work is exhibited by leading galleries throughout Britain, Europe and America and over 40 limited edition prints of his work have now been published.
Spencer's passion for nature and wildlife has proved to be an inexhaustible source of inspiration throughout his career. The many hundreds of hours spent studying wild animals and birds in their natural habitat are truly reflected in the realism of his work.
