Mick Loates

Mick studied at Sidcup and Ravensbourne Schools of Art. Throughout a career spanning 45 years his output has been remarkable: solely illustrating 22 titles including two Henry Williamson classics, ‘Salar the Salmon’ and ‘A Clear Water Stream’. Other titles include, ‘Collins Guide to Fish of Britain & Europe’, Tony Soper’s ‘Oceans of Birds’, Brian Clarke’s ‘Trout Etcetera’ and David Day’s award winning ‘Doomsday book of Animals’.
Represented for 26 years by The Malcolm Innes Gallery, London, he has exhibited extensively throughout the UK and Dublin, selling overseas to collectors from Europe, America, Africa and the Antipodes. Mick has appeared on television & radio in connection with his work. Despite these accolades he confesses he has never satisfied himself within any particular work.
Painters he admires include Singer Sargent, Renoir, Monet, Winslow Homer, Andrew and N.C. Wyeth, Stanhope and Elizabeth Forbes and others of the Newlyn School, Millais and Holman Hunt. Amongst his contemporaries, the wildlife and portraiture of Raymond Ching always seem one step ahead of others working within his genre.
A widely travelled man, Mick’s journeys have taken him across the world, however, England’s rivers, coast and country remain his homeland of which he is absolutely passionate.
