Fred Yates was a late beginner. In his mid-twenties he knew he wanted to become a art teacher. He enrolled in Bournemouth College of Art.
In 1950 he won a travelling scholarship and spent six months in Italy. On his return to Bournemouth he took up his profession as a teacher there and later in Brighton for the next 12 years.
During the WWII Yates served in the Grenadier Guards; in 1945 he returned to Manchester, where he started working as a house painter and decorator while producing easel paintings as a spare-time occupation.
Yates was 47 when he finally decided to start painting full-time. From the very beginning his work was marked by lush, vibrant colours and his style was quite distinctive.
He moved permanently to France in 1997. He died of a heart attack in 2008.
