June Wayne was born on March 7th and participated in an unbelievable number of art styles and movements.
I'm completely blown away by all the accomplishments of this one (self-taught) artist. June Wayne was:
- a watercolor artist
- WPA muralist
- jewelry designer
- industrial designer for aircraft industry
- founder of the Tamarind Lithography Workshop
- art critic and writer
- tapestry design
- led a series of "Joan of Art" seminars as part of the Feminist Art Movement
Just an incredible list of important and diverse accomplishments! Below are some of her works, you can clearly see what a dynamic and fearless artist she was.
"Once I know something, whatever it is, I move on to the next thing. Because, it's my curiosity that drives me."
