Boden was born and lived in Lincoln and studied at the Lincoln School of Art, Colarossi's in Paris, and at Antwerp. Further to this educational record, he went to the Camberwell School of Art and John Hassall's Poster School in Kensington. Primarily a watercolourist, he also produced linocuts and black and white work.
From 1911-1938 his sending-in address remained in Lincoln, and from there he exhibited widely. His local associations were with St Ives (Tovey).
