June Chanpoomidole is a freelance illustrator who uses a lot of complimentary colour schemes and acrylic paints, having found a love for painting while studying at the University of Westminster. She works and lives in a village in Greater London. She is also called June Sees.
Whether editorial, fashion or narrative illustration, her work is instantly recognisable with its beautiful figures, strong haze of colours, the atmospheric, ethereal tones and the sense of nostalgia.
One of June’s inspiration for her work comes from her family roots in the exotic farms of Thailand. She also gets inspired by watching animation, foreign cinema, stories and nature.
June has exhibited at a variety of exhibitions and pop up shows such as “The Picture Show” at the Coningsby Gallery, Mail Me Art 3: Short & Sweet Exhibition and Art Vs Cancer exhibition in Manchester.
Also she has been invited to run Tate Modern’s monthly workshop for young peoples programme in May 2014.
Recent projects included wedding decorations for private commissions and doing live portraiture at exciting events.
Her work has been featured in Amelia’s Compendium of Fashion Illustration, Bambu IOS App, Design Week, Computer Arts Magazine, LA Fashion Snob, Sketchbook Magazine, Ballad of, Flamingo Magazine, Think! Act! Vote! The Future We Choose and Grafik.—
