25 Nov The History Of Artist June Hicks
We have in stock – Trio of stunning early limited edition hand signed etching prints from notable artist June Hicks. Born in Yorkshire, but spent a large time of her artistic career in Cornwall. As always when we come across an artist that interests us, we like to do a little bit more research.
June Hicks was born in Yorkshire and has lived in Cornwall since 1957. She studied at the School of Art in Penzance with Bouverie Hoyton and John Tunnard and later learned to etch with the etching and engraving artist Joan Whiteford.
In 1987 she opened her own etching workshop and small gallery at Trevescan, near Sennen. Her work is now in private collections and galleries in Cornwall and beyond. She is a founder member of the Penwith Printmakers, and belongs to the Small Print Gallery co-operative in Penzance.
Whilst she specialises in etchings she also paints, June’s artwork is available to see all across the internet, however you can also follow her on her Facebook page.

Family Holidays to Cornwall
We love our family holidays to Cornwall, so many great memories made. We particularly love St Ives and Hayle beach, as do our two furry children Bruce and Mabel. There’s a great dog friendly beach at Hayle estuary, you can park at the church and walk down, we would highly recommend it for other dog owners! If you have never been, then simply go, is wonderful.
Any other dog friendly beaches you can recommend around that area? Let us know and comment below, we would love to hear from you 😊🐶.
