June Marshall BA ~ aka "junOmars" ~ my artist name
- Look beneath my photo to see my profile info
I don't remember a time
when I wasn't interested in art;
I sketched on every piece of paper
I could find from old wallpaper to
the white pages in books to the
lovely Christmas gift of a drawing pad
- a real luxury!
Everything had drawings all over it.
In 1975 I graduated from
Robert Gordon's University
- The faculty of Art and Design
at Gray's School of Art, Aberdeen
I have been a professional
free-lance artist most of my
adult life; when I was in
my early teens I worked for
a Scottish craft shop and
produced paintings which
were bought by American Tourists.
I have also worked for firms
doing art and design and open-day
exhibitions etc for firms such as
Dungannon Development Association
and Stewarts' Clock Manufacturers;
I also have an annual job of
Calligraphy with Craigavon Hospital.
Now I am creating my collections
concentrating more on my
artist's identity and style but am never
going to give up the fascination I have for all forms of art and the passion I have for all
my commissions whatever medium they require.
Over the years, I have exhibited in various places as a solo artist and at joint exhibitions and also with my two daughters, also artists with their own distinct style.
My work reflects the versatility of media I've taught in the various colleges in Northern Ireland. Having been an art-lecturer with Armagh College, East Tyrone College, Parkanaur College and with Northern Ireland's WEA, I find it very exciting to explore all the variety of materials using expert techniques and interpret them using all the principles I have both taught and have learned over my three decades as a professional artist.
I am available to negotiate about any type of commission in any medium and can provide a professional, fully-finished and ready-to-hang piece of art at a reasonable price. My other website, www.artjuno.co.uk displays the wider, more versatile aspect of my work, ranging from fine art to calligraphy and covering nearly all art forms including sculpture and jewellery making.
