June Valentine- Ruppe
June was born and raised in California
where she continues to pursue her love of
drawing, illustrating and painting.
For over 30 years she has illustrated more
then 120 collectable children books for
Publishers such as Disney, Random House,
Scholastic, Golden Books, Lyrick
and Publishers International.
In these books, June illustrated licensed
Characters including: Sesame Street Characters;
Disney Characters, such as the Fab Five,
Little Mermaid and Winnie The Pooh;
Lamb Chop and Friends;
and Barney the Dinosaur,
among many others.
But, according to June, “ my real love
has always been painting on canvas,
which gives me the freedom to create
my own original art work.
I love bringing interesting characters to life”.
