June's has regularly taken part in Herts Open Studios over many years . She took part in Herts Open Studios 2020 and relished working on the daily themes during the event. June has signed up for Open Studios 2021 with a group of artists at Southern Maltings in Ware and will be running silk painting workshops on Saturdays.
As a member of the Barnet Collection art group she has had her silk and devore scarves for sale in shops in Whetstone and Mill Hill. She has exhibited at The Workhouse in Dunstable. "Stay Away!" - a collage made during the Covid lockdown was on show in their Lockdown Exhibition. June had work displayed in Baldock Museum as a member of the Herts Textile Group.
She had a table at Living Crafts at Hatfield House in June 2021.
June graduated with a BA Hons at UH in Hatfield in 2000 where she thoroughly enjoyed exploring lots of different techniques and materials working in a variety of media. Her project creating the signature image and textiles for the Garden Room and photographs for display at Barnet General Hospital was most rewarding - a really worthwhile cause.
June is also a member of the Guild of Silk Painters, The Barnet Collection, and the Barnet Guild of Artists.
Taking and manipulating photographs and creating textiles are predominantly what inspires me Apart from pictures of anything and everything taken on my travels she finds colour, reflections, light, shadow and texture inspirational. Using stencils and photographic silk screen printing processes I create etched devore scarves and hangings, and welcome commissions. I enjoy hands on dyeing and silk painting, printing and using and manipulated and decorated papers alongside her photographs and textiles to create collages and cards.
Running workshops and encouraging people to explore techniques and have a go is something I really enjoy.
