June Ellis is an artist and freelance writer. She enjoys painting the beauty that surrounds her. Living in rural Prince Edward Island all her life has given June a special connection to the Island’s beauty. This is captured through her oil and acrylic paintings of the sandy shores, light houses and farm lands. June has an eye for capturing soft colours in her paintings. Some of her paintings have been enlarged as prints to adorn the walls at Mill River Resort, PEI. She has done several commissioned pieces for customers wanting something special.
Studied under Island artists Lise Genova, Lucie Bellemare, Henry Purdy, Sandi Komst, Maurice Bernard, Emily Durant and Nan Ferrier.
