June Hills


June Hills is a mixed media artist based in Alberta, Canada. She was raised in Buffalo, New York, in the heart of the rust belt of the United States. Her move to Western Canada ignited a passionate love affair with the wild spaces of Canada. June graduated from the Alberta College of Art + Design with a BFA with distinction in Painting.

She is inspired by the Canadian Rockies and the The Canadian Shield, and continues to collect birchbark and ephemera from the forest on her canoe journeys and wanderings in the forest. June’s sketches and sketchbooks are created plein aire, and painted with the waters of the land that informs them. June is also very interested in community based artmaking, and has more recently hosted several t(r)ea parties for the public.

In addition she coordinates How to Draw a Tree, an ongoing correspondence mail art project, and makes Artist Trading Cards with kids of all ages in her arTent.
