Welcome and thanks for dropping by!  I'm excited to announce 

that this Spring 2022 my first illustrated picture book,

' Birds Dig, Dance and Dive,' written by Etta Kaner and published by Owl Kids is set for release!  

I am an illustrator and writer among underrepresented creators. In both my art and writing, I enjoy exploring themes of our connection to nature and portraying animals with humor and empathy. Lately, most of my illustrations are drawn on paper, and colored with either watercolor wash or digitally. 

I create illustrations for books, cover art, magazines, coins, posters, museum exhibits, and the film industry. If you have a project in mind, please feel free to contact me at june.steube@icloud.com
