Glen Loates, R.C.A, master artist, began his professional career at age 11 when he sketched and modeled the yellow daffodil, used by the Canadian Cancer Society as its symbol for more than forty years. Glen has been honored nationally and internationally including special commissions, and invitations to join scientific expeditions. Glen's work has been exhibited in such venues all over the world. Glen Loates is the first Canadian artist to be represented at the White House. In 1982, President Reagan, on behalf of the people of the United States of America, accepted the painting "The Bald Eagle" in The Oval Office. His wanderings have taken him from his backyard to the frigid Arctic terrain; from the deserts of Arizona, to the bottom of the ocean a mile beneath the water's surface off the coasts of Newfoundland and Bermuda. Glen has been internationally acknowledged to be one of today's foremost artists. His work has been featured throughout the world in such publications as Geo Magazine, Time Magazine and Reader's Digest. He has received many honors, including induction into the prestigious Explorers' Club, for being the first artist to descend 5, 117 feet in a submersible, to study and record deep-sea life in the Atlantic Ocean. Les Line, editor of Audubon Magazine, New York, in 1977 wrote: "I have been frequently asked to name the best nature artist. To do so, even were I willing, is patently impossible. There are artists who specialize in birds, in plants, in fishes and other marine life. There are even artists who paint little else but charging elephants and stalking lions. There are very few nature artists capable of portraying any subject with great skill, imagination and accuracy, who can capture the being of a blue jay, cougar, salmon, lily, or moth with equal excellence. And there is none better in this elite category than Martin Glen Loates...What leaps from the paintings is the essence, the vitality, and the place of the animal. It's Life!"
