June Wayne (1918-2011) was a key figure in the history of American printmaking. Born in Chicago, she settled in Los Angeles and in 1948 began to make lithographs at the renowned print workshop of Lynton Kistler. At her own Tamarind Lithography Workshop, which she founded in 1960, she would pioneer the hugely influential practice of artist-printer collaborations. Tamarind became a force in the international printmaking world, and Wayne’s own lithographs were widely recognized as masterpieces of the technique. In later life, active in both printmaking and tapestry design, she contributed significantly to the feminist art movement.
