June Carey began her Art Education in the 1960s at Glasgow School of Art. In 1982 she became a member of Edinburgh Printmakers and began a lifelong love affair with printmaking. Discovering etching brought about a turning-point in her work and career. The process of making an etching set her imagination free. Suddenly she had found her subject, and has been exhibiting her work widely throughout Britain and abroad since.
Her awards include The Scottish Arts Council 1998, McGrigor Donald Trust 1989, European City of Culture Woman 2000 (First Prize) 1990, Dundee District Council Purchase Prize 1991, British Council Assistance Grant 1992, The Hope Scott Trust Award 1993, Scottish Arts Club Award 1993, McDonald Orr Ltd 1993, Anne Redpath Award 1996, BP Aberdeen Assistance Grant 2002, Connell & Connell Sponsorship and in 2004, a Research Grant from the Scottish Arts Council, to visit India.
