Annette Hodges

Annette Findley Hodges is a native Texan, currently living in Cleburne, Texas. Annette is married and Mother of two grown daughters.

Though Hodges never received a formal art education she has realized a high level of skill through books, museums and study with leading artists. Most of her references for paintings originate in Mexico, where her extended travels allow her to closely observe details of everyday life in markets and street scenes. The Texas Hill Country is also a rich source of subject matter. Although Annette illustrates meticulous detail in her work, she never lets minutiae interfere with the mood she seeks to convey.

Annette has received numerous awards in juried competitions, but does not place much emphasis on them. She states that the collector makes the “ultimate judgment and gives me the greatest reward for my efforts. I want my collectors to enjoy the painting and appreciate what I saw and how I interpreted what I was seeing”.
