About the Artist

As her dad’s cowhand, June grew up on her family’s quintessential Texas ranch that has been in her family for over a hundred years and has been recognized by the state as a “Texas Century Ranch”.  She grew up riding horses and working cattle with her dad loving every minute of it.  She & her husband raised their family on that same land which has nurtured her passion for her art giving her the subjects she loves and paints.  Her paintings depict her sensitive sense of color plus the strong feelings she has for her subjects.  Her desire is to capture the subjects she paints with the passion she feels for them while creating a mood that the viewers share.  She loves painting Western landscapes and figurative pieces.
