June Valentine-Ruppe
Red Roses
OIL on canvas
11 x 14 in


June was born and raised in California where she continues to pursue her love of drawing, illustrating and painting.

For over 30 years she has illustrated more then 120 collectable children books for Publishers such as Disney, Random House, Scholastic, Golden Books, Lyrick and Publishers International.

In these books, June illustrated licensed characters including: Sesame Street Characters;
Disney Characters, such as the Fab Five,Little Mermaid and Winnie The Pooh; Lamb Chop and Friends; and Barney the Dinosaur, among many others.

But, according to June, “my real love has always been painting on canvas, which gives me the freedom to create my own original art work. I love bringing interesting characters to life”.

Quietly sophisticated June's character paintings are at once whimsical, aloof, pensive and edgy. She creates visually engaging portraits of familiar people in interesting settings and often bringing to life elaborate costumes and makeup.
