Born and raised in the Stephenville, Texas area, Yeates graduated from North Texas State University with a BFA in Drawing and Painting in 1974. After teaching at a private school in Dallas for about a year, Yeates moved to Austin and soon began working at the Armadillo World Headquarters, a music concert hall. Posters promoting shows followed and led to promotional art for Lone Star Beer during the 80’s. Through this medium, Yeates’ art traveled around the world.

In the late 80’s Yeates, began teaching painting, drawing, and mural execution at Austin Community College.

“To me, a painting is like a play unfolding on a stage. The artist conveys a personal world created from his imagination, memories and past experiences. In my work, this theatrical analogy applies, it is for the most part, narrative, often figurative and highly personal. There are also common themes that weave their way throughout my work. I find this affords me the opportunity to further explore these subjects visually and build on previous work.”
