June Yun started her career as a fashion designer and has been exhibiting her work globally over the past decade, showcasing her art in locations such as Washington DC, Los Angeles, Chicago, Singapore, and Seoul. June currently has a permanent exhibit at Neiman Marcus in Tysons Galleria VA, the LG headquarters, and Ewha University Woman’s Cancer Center in Seoul. Previously an art teacher for Fairfax County Public Schools, she currently runs her own art institute, Little Picasso & Portfolio Prep in Annandale, Virginia.

Her recent “LOVE - A Message in a Bottle” series explores how we use communication as a survival mechanism during challenging times. Using mixed media such as magazines, newspapers, poetry, real gold and silver, copper leaves, and paint on wooden canvases. June seeks to understand how communication in all its forms, with strangers and loved ones, across different timelines and mechanisms, shape our identities and understanding of the world.
Climate change, and our generation’s emotions surrounding it, are also themes of June’s work. The dinosaurs in her painting recall what was once the mightiest creatures on earth, reduced to extinction. They urge us to take better care of our planet or otherwise risk a similar fate - while reminding us that it is not too late. “We must work together to find healing and welcome a radiant citrus Spring. A new beginning for us all.”
