Karen June Grant is a mixed media embroidery artist living in the Boston area with her husband Jason, their son Kolya and pup Lucas. Karen has been creating and sewing since she was a little girl in the Hudson River Valley.
Simply June launched in 2004 with a line of handbags inspired by her adoption experience in Russia. These days, Karen has been spending a lot of time under the tutelage of 8 year old artist-in-residence, Kolya. Their days are spent creating with markers, crayons, paint, colored pencils, stickers, construction paper, recycled magazines, glue and just about any supplies they can get their hands on.
Inspired by hand embroidery, photography, travel and all things vintage, she strives to make beautiful work that is transparent, connected and soulful.
