Meet Texas Artist June Holloway

I was born in England where I received a University of London degree in Art. I have been painting and drawing all my life and at the age of  twelve  I received a beautiful box of oil paints. When I became the mother of twin boys my oil painting was curtailed, little boys and oil paints do not mix. My local art supply clerk suggested that I switch to pastels it was love at first sight. At the age of thirty five I moved with my three sons to America I carried one suitcase containing my cloths, and a backpack containing all my art supplies. We settled in Wichita Kansas and I found a wonderful art community there, I joined many of the art groups and I continued my art career. I am a portrait and still life artist and I have had portrait commissions in England, America and Guatemala. My work has won awards in national competitions in Kansas, New Mexico, Colorado and Texas. Although I have worked in all mediums my favorites are still pastel and graphite pencil. I am now at a point in my life when I can do what pleases me.  I love to paint and I love to pass on the knowledge that I have garnered through the years. I now have about thirty students who share my passion for painting. My hopes for the future is that I can continue to paint and draw and that my paintings will be enjoyed by my clients and my viewers for many years  to come.
