Bio: I have been aware of June Maxwell's paintings for some years now. I don't know why I haven't blogged about her before this.
June L. Maxwell received her Bachelor of Fine Arts at the Moore College of Art in Philadelphia, studying under Paulette van Roekens and Arthur Meltzer. Later on she took classes from the late Richard Pionk and workshops with Daniel Greene. Before deciding on fine art as her ultimate direction, she worked as a greetings card designer for fifteen years. Having won numerous awards, both locally and in New York, she was invited to lecture and demonstrate at the Salmagundi Club and the Pastel Society of America. She was also an instructor for the P.S.A. National Arts School. In 1997, she was designated a Master Pastelist by the Pastel Society of America. Her paintings are represented in collections throughout the country.
June has been exhibiting since 1989 and winning awards since 1991. She was featured in Best of Pastels and Best of Pastel 2 (Quarry Books) and in August 2007 she was the cover story in the Pastel Journal.
June Maxwell lives in Meadowbrook, Pennsylvania.
