June Hicks was born in Yorkshire and studied history at Leeds University, following this up with an MA from Queens University, Belfast. After moving to Cornwall in 1957 she studied at Penzance School of Art under Bouverie HOYTON and John TUNNARD. Later she turned to etching, training under Joan WHITEFORD.
Since 1987 she has worked from Trevescan Studio, near Sennen. Inspiration comes mainly from her surroundings, in particular her garden, farm buildings and animals. Sheltered aspects of the Cornish landscape such as footpaths, stiles and hedges, offering contrasts of light and shade, provide subject matter for her etchings.
