UMA Ellsworth Center
June Kellogg lives in Brooklin, Maine and paints in a studio next to her home. She studied art and art education at Byam Shaw School of Art in London, England and at the State University of New York at New Paltz. She received her MFA in painting from Marywood University in Pennsylvania.
While living in Pennsylvania, June supported herself by teaching art classes to children and adults in her painting studio.
After moving back to Maine, she turned an old wood working shop next to her home into a summer studio and converted a finished room in her basement into a winter studio. She continued to teach art, first in public schools, then privately, and now to college students.
June’s paintings evolved over the years from realism to abstraction and now to a combination of realism and abstraction. June’s work focuses on color, rhythm, and texture and she currently uses a technique that incorporates ceramic stucco textural medium with acrylic paint on canvas. She paints with both a palette knife and a brush.
Her latest painting series, “Coastal Textures” focuses on combining her perception of the distant landscape with her intuitive depiction of the color and rhythm of foreground growth. Over the years, she has shown her work in solo and group shows at various Maine galleries.
