Hodges Fine Art
Featured Artist Bio:  
Daniel L. Hodges

A Native St. Louisan, I have been drawing
and painting since the age of nine.  My
mother saw my talent and bought me
coloring books until the age of fourteen,
thereby enhancing my hand and eye
coordination.  On December 2, 1995, I
showed my first piece of art at Portfolio
Gallery in St. Louis, MO.

On each painting, near my signature is the
symbol 12/2 enclosed by a heart.  This is in
memory of my mother, Mrs. Dannice Paster
who noticed that her little boy had an
extraordinary gift, long before I ever knew.  
She passed away exactly a year to the date
of my first showing (12/2/1994).  She is the
reason that I am an artist today.  

My career has blossomed and expanded to
Portraits as well as Fine art.  I have won
numerous awards in recognition of my
artistic ability and skills.

"Every person has a circle of life. My circle
begins with God who created me and
blessed me with a gift.  I use God's gift to
support my family, bless others and glorify
God.  I am complete."
