June Hammond - Contemporary Art

About me

I was interested in drawing and painting from an early age and continued doing art at school until 16, but then concentrated on other subjects at ‘A’ level.  After graduating and then studying for professional qualifications in personnel management, I worked as a personnel/HR manager. I moved to East Yorkshire in 1979 and worked for the City of York Council and the University of York.  After a career in personnel/HR management, I decided to concentrate on art and became a student again, achieving an HNC in Fine Art at York College.  I am a member of East Riding Artists (ERA):  http://www.eastridingartists.co.uk/
