This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A landscape and seascape painter whose work has won honors for the last six years in the "Arts for the Parks Top 100," June Carey is an artist who likes to depict what she calls the "rough edges of the world," meaning scenes with bare branches and dead logs in a stream.

She has never had formal art training.  She began painting with oil when she was a child and saved leftovers from paint-by-numbers.  Her career began to take off when she was a successful sales person at outdoor shows of her own paintings, primarily sand dunes in the Death Valley area.

At that time her style was tight and highly realistic, but a severe case of tendonitus caused her to loosen her style and to have fun experimenting with methods such as wet-on-wet.  She especially enjoys doing mural-size pieces.

Another breakthrough occurred when Carey showed a photo of a seascape to J. Russell Jinishian Director of the Mystic Maritime gallery in Mystic.  He immediately hung the work in his gallery.

She is married to historical maritime artist David Thimgan.

Biography from Trailside Galleries:
California artist June Carey was born in Takoma Park, Maryland. Married to maritime artist David Thimgan, June favors California scene land and coast, for her subject matter. At an early age, she was given much opportunity to share her parents’ love of art. In her own attempts to draw and follow her mother’s neat little drawings, she enjoyed a lot of enthusiastic encouragement from both parents. She admits to never being able to study art, and in her stubbornness she has struggled to learn everything her own way.

June's focus is on chasing the light, catching it on camera, and projecting it onto her canvas in her studio. Artistic movements such as “The Eucalyptus Painters” and the California Plein-Air movement in the late 1800’s greatly inspired her to paint California light just the way she sees it.

June’s work has won her a variety of awards, including the Art for the Parks Region II Award in 1997 and the Gold Medal from the California Art Club Gold Medal Exhibition in 1998. Her work has also been exhibited at the Frye Museum in Seattle, Washington and at the Coos Art Museum in Coos Bay, Oregon.

She and her work have been profiled in “Wildlife Art” magazine October/November 2000 edition, “The Widening World of Women in Art, Staying Tuned to Discovery”, U.S. Art Gallery, August 2001, “Introductions, - 25 Artists you Should Know”, NorthLight Books and “Art
