Dave Hodges became interested in artwork at a very young age, when his early artistic interests were in creating drawings, ceramics, and paintings. He graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree from Montana State University, Bozeman, Montana in 1979. Dave began to participate in art shows and placing paintings in art galleries during the early 1970’s. In 1982, he began his professional career as a bronze sculptor, and continues successfully in that field to this time. Throughout those 30 years, Dave has created sculptures in a wide array of subjects and sizes, ranging from miniatures to life size statues. His subjects of interest range widely from cowboys, horses and wildlife, to ballerinas and opera singers.
