Kaye Hodges

Kaye Hodges lives in Kent. She has been passionate about drawing since she attended art school, and would often draw her fellow students in the lectures. She achieved, before leaving college, selection into the Association of Illustrators annual. She has been a figurative illustrator and felt this was an excellent training ground in portraiture as characters occurred throughout the books continuously, therefore accuracy of features was vital.

Where she lives in Kent is also tremendously inspirational to her – the combination of natural and man made elements in her environment occur throughout her work. She is particularly interested in light in all its forms, how it describes objects and creates atmosphere.

She was lucky enough to have portraits in the BP/National Gallery Portraiture exhibition in 1981, 1984 and 2010.

She has had her own solo exhibition in Cranbrook Library, Kent in 2014. She was selected to be one of 54 entrants in the Sky Portrait Artist of the year 2017, filmed at the Wallace Collection. Two of her drawings were selected for the Open Exhibition Draw 16, with the Society of Graphic Fine Arts, at the Menier Galleries. Since then Kaye has become a member of the SGFA, also known as The Drawing Society. Her painted self-portrait was exhibited in the Ruth Borchard Self Portrait Prize Exhibition in 2019. In 2020, Kaye has had work included in the exhibitions of Royal Society of British Artists, The Society of Womens Artists, the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists Prize, and the ING Discerning Eye.

Kaye also took part in the Portraits for NHS Heroes set up by Tom Croft MBE, and one work was including in the charitable book of the same name.
