June Kellogg lives in Brooklin, Maine and paints in a studio next to her home. She studied art and art education at Byam Shaw Art College 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, she had solo exhibitions at the Neglia Gallery, at Marywood University, and at Kings College. During this time, she 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 semi-abstraction to abstraction and now back again to semi-abstraction. Her work has been inspired by Abstract Expressionism and more specifically by the abstract work of two women artists - Grace Hartigan and Joan Mitchell. 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, “Women Walking” is a celebration of the strong spirit of women in all walks of life. The paintings are semi-abstract and depict women walking as a symbol of female empowerment. Over the years, June has shown her work in solo and group shows at various Maine galleries.
