ABOUT JUNE

A child of professional musicians, it was apparent by a very early age that June had already established her tendency for depicting the human form; since when it has been a crowded life of painting portraits from all walks of life and race in many countries.

“There is a never ending fascination in the intrinsic differences and similarities of the shapes, body language, and individual visual story of each subject, plus the excitements of composition and all the technical necessities.”

Portraits in public and private collections internationally, including the National Portrait Gallery.
