About June Menton

 
 
  • Biography
    By profession I am an Accountant and in order to de-stress from all the number crunching I started oil painting 7 years ago, I knew from the start that I was only interested in painting portraits, I started out painting simple cartoon type portraits, getting used to painting eyes, nose, mouth etc. It was during a trip to Rome in 2010 that I found a black and white photo of an old film star, I knew I had found what I really love to paint.
    I started painting from black and white photos all the great Hollywood actresses- Greta Garbo, Audrey Hepburn and Marlene Dietrich. The final painting looks like a photo and captures the mystery and beauty of these actresses.
