Biography

June Forster

artist's photo

June began her journey to become an artist in 1996 when she attended an Aberystwyth University drawing course in Ystrad Meurig. Having continued her studies through BA and MA Fine Art, she completed her practice-led PhD in Fine Art in 2014. June teaches drawing and painting at the School of Art, Aberystwyth University and Lifelong Learning classes in various parts of Wales. "I hope that through teaching I can convey something of the poetry of painting to my students, as well as the fact it is hard work, requiring dedication and practise." she says.

In 2011 two paintings were purchased by ‘Paintings in Hospitals’ for their collection through a grant to acquire Welsh landscape art.
