June Singleton

Water Interludes

With fellow artist and friend, Larian Sloan.
  • Watercolour
  • Oil



After retiring to Maleny in 1991 from teaching Ancient History, History, English and French at Indooroopilly State High School for 13 years, June Singleton began painting and was taught watercolours by well-known artist, the late George Hazzard. June went on to participate in several live-in courses run by international artists, Robert Wade, Jennifer McNaughton, Amanda Hyatt and  recent workshops with Robert Lovett and Alvira Castagnet.

June has exhibited in many Art Competitions winning several awards, including the 2004 Apex Award in the prestigious St George s Art Awards and Competition. This painting was featured on the front cover of the 2004 Maleny Business Directory.

In October, 2004, June and her husband, Geoff, moved back to the Western Suburbs of Brisbane to Riverhills. That year, she helped organise the successful St Catherine s Anglican Art Expo - which was again staged in September 2006 and 2007. June conducted art classes in Acrylics at Middle Park for 2 years.. In September 2006, they moved into Aveo Village, Durack, Brisbane. Her art classes continue but at St Hugh s Anglican Hall, Inala.

She has had many solo Exhibitions and is to have a shared one at the Graceville Gallery in May, 2008 with fellow artist and friend, Larian Sloan. Her work has been seen and sold at the Annual Maleny St George s Art Exhibition and Awards, St Catherine s Art Exhibition and the Lutheran Good News Annual Art Show. She is a member of the Watercolour Society of Queensland and also of The Half Dozen Group f Artists Inc who meet at St Mary s, Kangaroo Point, Brisbane.

Her work now includes larger pieces such as trompe d eil for clients’ outdoor settings. She paints in watercolour, oil, acrylic and mixed media. June s passion is painting from her travels around the world and in Australia. Her subjects include landscapes, oceans, rivers, people, cities, animals and flowers. It is the excitement of sharing, not only the softness and romance of overseas places but also the stark reality, loneliness and bold colours of Australia which motivates June in her painting. They all echo her theme, I want to Colour my World for you.
