Melissa Mailer Yates bio:
I purposefully avoided art college as I was unsure about becoming a part of the great out-wash that appeared to be the end product of the system. In hindsight I believe I probably missed out on a great deal, however I did enjoy early successes as a result. My first year saw me commissioned by Her Majesty the Queen, which subsequently entailed visits to Buckingham palace and ultimately a private audience. This early fillip led me to other exciting commissions, most notably portraits of Princesses for the Saudi Arabian Royal Family, and more recently Betsy Bloomingdale, and the Consul-General of Los Angeles.
Apart from my portrait work. I have also won awards for my unique Equestrian painting. As I am an Associate member of the Society of Equestrian Artists.
I have shown extensively in Britain and had a wonderful solo exhibition in New York in 1997 that was filmed by the BBC. I have also exhibited in Los Angeles, San Francisco and Aspen, Colorado. I worked directly with the Medical Arts Program at UCLA, which coincided, with my being made an honourary board member of the Fine Art Dealers of America. During my time in the States I was invited to speak on behalf of the British Consulate, and also co-hosted an event with Ivana Trump, presenting the ‘Spirit of Freedom’ award to Goldie Hawn.
