June Beckett


Born 1940

Born in Buckinghamshire, England, in 1940, June moved to Australia in 1964, and is now living in the beautiful Hunter Valley region of New South Wales. She is self-taught and only started painting after retirement in 1995. Initially she painted flowers but having moved to a country property and surrounded by abundant wildlife, she has turned to painting birds in a style which has been described as “pseudo-realistic”. Despite many awards and accolades, she has never wanted to turn professional.
