June Farnham’s contemporary landscape paintings reflect the moods, colors and forms of nature at locations in Westchester County, New York such as Rockefeller State Park, Teatown Lake Reservation and along the Hudson River. Currently she uses her own photographs to capture natural landscape images during walks. Using these photographs as a basis to trigger her art work, she modifies the color schemes and shapes compositions that are part reality and partly reflect her own artistic view. Although her paintings are largely realistic, she experiments with abstraction as a way to express what nature offers to the eye.
In 1970-1971, while attending Skidmore College, June Farnham participated in art classes including studio art. She graduated from the University of Michigan with a B.S. degree in 1973 and in 1975 with a M. Arch. degree. She practiced architecture for years and currently maintains a license to practice in New York State. June Farnham has in the last decade renewed her interest in painting and studied techniques and composition on her own and in classes.
