June Kaminski, RN MSN is an artist devoted to inspirational and metaphoric works of art. Her interest in the arts began
as a child, expressed through active participation in music performance and study (voice, piano). From an early age she
realized how powerful and clearing music could be for the body, the mind, and the spirit. Not to mention the emotional
As a University student, June continued her exploration of the arts through courses in ballet, film direction and music
development, fine art production and computer science (while majoring in Nursing). Her interest continued into graduate
study, where her thesis topic showed a blend of art and science in the theme, "The Effects of Soothing Music on Neonatal
Behavioural States in the Hospital Newborn Nursery" (published in Neonatal Network, February 1996). In 2002, June began studying for her PhD in Curriculum Studies and Technology Education at the University of British Columbia. As part of her coursework, she looked at Cyberart as a Psychological Tool for learning and culture building.
Creativity is a key to holistic health in June's view. Now, in her role as a University College Nursing faculty member,
June is devoted to inspiring creativity in students and other faculty through the use of writing, art, music, dance, and webpage
design for healing and integration. June's art work has evolved as a personal choice for self-therapy and expression. Her galleries
continue to grow as she indulges the Muse through digital art pieces derived from a combination of scanned drawings, photography,
and computer-generated images. She intends to continue to create work that reflects the multidimensionality of life, combining themes
of symbology, mysticism, nature, sacred places and the human journey. Her goal is to manifest art that speaks to the viewer's soul and
inspires deep reverie and creative ventures in them as well.
June is the owner of the Pegasus Art Gallery, a virtual non-profit gallery devoted to showcasing the art of over 229 international artists, with a mirror site at Pegasus Artist Gallery.
She strongly believes that the internet is a godsend for artists, who can now touch the souls, hearts and minds of people on a global scale. She
is happy to offer web space to help artists put their art online in the company of other talented people from around the world.
