Australian Aboriginal Art by June Peters

June was born on Texas Downs Station in the Kimberly area in 1962. She lives in Kununurra, has eight children and visits her relatives in Warmun as often as possible. She was originally taught to paint by one of the best…Lena Nyadbi, who like many first generation ochre artists, seems to have devoted her life to teaching youngsters both culture and painting.

June has an extended family and through her mother, father, aunties and uncles, is able to paint the huge expanse of Kitja land. This gives the artist a wonderful content for her works and June is fastidious about the Kitja Dreaming Stories represented in her paintings.

June paints both in the typical Warmun style (thick, crusty ochre) as well as fine detailed works in minimal palette. She is the only artist we know who has completed collaborative works with the highly sought after artist Tommy Carroll. Junes work has been quickly noticed and purchased by astute collectors. She has a promising future.
