I started out drawing, and still love to use it for developing concepts, working studies, and finished pieces.

Welcome to the art of William J Hodgson

I'd like to share some current projects, along with select older, unfinished pieces I'm considering finishing.




my story


WJ Hodgson


Since my first published writing and art project in grade school, I've produced thousands of paintings and illustrations, appeared in several-hundred shows, and won over 200 awards.

Principal works and studies in various media.

I started doing reverse-painted astronomicals for certain shows and still spend a couple weeks a year having fun with them.
