June is a Maximalist Collage Artist who paints with paper using a ‘more is more’ approach.  She works exclusively with her own hand monoprinted tissue papers, hand cut stencils and a Gelli Plate to create intensely colourful, highly patterned and vibrant collaged pieces.  In her 3D sculptural work, she is fascinated by the way printed tissue paper becomes skin-like and is transformed into something that balances inherent fragility with a strong aesthetic presence.  The result is pieces which are delightfully tactile and cry out to be touched, turned and held.

June had always been far more engaged by seeing ‘the hand of the artist’ over technical precision; she is always seeking to communicate the intensely personal connection she has with each piece as it evolves through an intuitively ‘call and response’ moment to moment conversation between contributing elements. 

June lives and works in her home based studio in New Brighton.
