June is a Vancouver-based photographer, artist and blogger. She grew up in an industrial town in the North of England where there were very few wild birds. The gift of a camera for her ninth birthday was life changing. After studying English Literature in beautiful North Wales, she moved to Canada. A period of living alone, building a cabin and tree planting in remote northern British Columbia proved to be a valuable, if unconventional, part of her art education. Moving to Vancouver, she completed a diploma in Media Studies, as well as a variety of fine art and photography courses. She began her full-time art career in 2006. Her bird photography is the basis of a variety of work, ranging from large scale prints, to items for daily use, such as cushion covers and bags. 

Support for Conservation: 

Believing that it is human nature to fight hardest to protect that which you love, the goal of my work is to inspire the same fierce love I feel for nature (especially in the hard-scrabble urban setting) in those who view my images. Elements employed to this end are beauty, humour, daily social media posts and my blog, The Urban Nature Enthusiast.
