Born in Yorkshire in 1958, Gudgeon 'lived deep in the countryside on the family farm, learning the essential arts of observation, evaluation and interpretation of how animals and birds behave, both with each other and man'. After studying law at Reading University, he practiced as a solicitor, starting painting only in his thirties and first exhibiting at London's Battersea Exhibition Centre in 1992. An impulse purchase of artist's clay at the age of 40 led into his new career as a sculptor, responding to what lay closest to his heart: the natural world.

A sculpture, on a superficial level must encapsulate beauty, it must uplift the spirit and enhance its surroundings. But on a deeper level it should resonate with the viewer and have a subconscious appeal to their emotions, whether those emotions are the same as the artist intended is not important, what is important is that the viewer connects with the art.
