Michael Hodgson

Traveler at HI Travel Tales
Born to British parents in Canada, Michael Hodgson had been schlepped back and forth across the pond since he was a toddler. In college, he took the big leap and spent a few months in Kenya – and never looked back. His biology major somehow led him into a writing career, focusing on the outdoors, hiking and gear testing. Building on his lifetime of travel with travel writing was a natural, although he still loves to seek out the wilder side of a mountain – or a city -- for a good story. Michael also is a partner in a consulting business ( built on a passion to help specialty businesses and brands succeed both domestically and internationally.

Michael’s iPad travel art captures scenes from his travels around the world, artwork you can now enjoy in your own home, or as the perfect gift for the travelers in your life. World traveler, adventurer, and artist Michael Hodgson has long enjoyed sketching and painting, but it was not until a bucket-list trip in 2012 where he crewed on a sailboat for the crossing from Fiji to New Zealand that he discovered a passion for taking his artwork to the iPad. His original pieces were quick sketches and watercolors created with the program Penultimate. He now draws and paints, favoring ink and watercolor, working primarily in the program Procreate as he enjoys the numerous brushes and pens and wide color pallet to choose from.
