About Cath.

“The smallest things in life are actually the biggest things in life”

Artist in Residence at Painswick Rococo Gardens, Glos.

Cath Hodsman AMRSB, is one of the U.K’s foremost entomological artists, illustrators and teachers. Based in the Cotswolds, she has exhibited; showcased her art; or taught at many relevant esteemed venues throughout her career, including the Queens Gallery, Buckingham Palace, The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, R.H.S Wisley and the Natural History Museum, London. Cath believes that the best way to celebrate the importance and relevance of insects in a happy, healthy ecology, is to capture their micro beauty and anatomical intricacy. She uses microscopes in her work in order to capture beauty that is invisible to us – as such she has been made an Associate Member of the Royal Society of Biology.

Her unique and detailed insect art has also been celebrated by organisations such as Bloomsbury Publishing. Click for more info: https://www.writersandartists.co.uk/artists/advice/382/an-artists-toolkit/finding-inspiration/
