Hobden lived in South Benfleet, and made its locality the subject of a number of landscapes. His works are often on a small scale, very closely controlled tonally and painstakingly finished, as if they were miniatures. He also illustrated a number of books. He exhibited at the Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool, RA, RI, ROI and RBA, to which he was elected in 1901.
