In her oil painting practice, June tends toward scenes of the local landscape, painting coastal images of boats, lighthouses and beaches. In keeping with the technique of plein air painting, June captures impressions of these landscapes, utilizing slightly subdued pigments and gestural brush marks to quickly capture an image of a setting before losing the light.

In addition to her personal art practice, June hosts and organizes group painting parties in which she guides each participant through the creation of their own oil painting.
