Melissa Mailer-Yates ASEA

Working from her studio in Warwickshire, England, Mailer-Yates is primarily known as a portrait artist. Some of her most recent work is a fascinating combination of abstract and representational painting centred on the female form. This collection was the basis of an impressive international tour, which gained immense interest through the unique approach employed. Her superb equestrian work has earned her a number of prestigious awards, emphasising the unusual diversity of her skills.

She is particularly articulate concerning her own work and its place within the halls of Art history thus creating a demand for lectures, other public speaking events, and her writings. Her books include her first published children’s book “The Bogglebott”, a work in progress based on Shakespeare for children, and her first novel “Packwood” a historical novel, due out soon.

Commissions include those for her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, Her Royal Highness Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother, Prince Nawaf and Princess Jawaher of the Saudi Arabian Royal Family, as well as other celebrities and nobility throughout the World. Some of her more interesting commissions has been a series of equestrian works for Royal Doulton, and a series of celebrity portraits which was the centre-piece for the opening of the Los Angeles Art Show.

Apart from the United Kingdom her works can be found in many countries including the United States of America, Canada, the Middle East, Africa, Germany, Luxembourg, Norway and Australia.

She has had solo exhibitions throughout the U.K. and in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Aspen. Elected Associate of the Society of Equestrian Artists 1997, Elected to member of the Fine Art Trade Guild 1998, and Honorary Board Member of the Association of Fine Art Dealers of America in 1999. Together with Ivana Trump, she co-hosted the 1999 Spirit of Freedom Award in Aspen, during which she presented one of her paintings and a sculpture by Marton Varo to Goldie Hawn, an award for her work in Tibet.
