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 print workshop of Lynton Kistler. At her own Tamarind Lithography Workshop, which she founded in 1960, Wayne would pioneer the hugely influential practice of artist-printer collaborations. Tamarind moved to Albuquerque in 1970 but she remained in Los Angeles, pursuing printmaking, tapestry design, and the feminist art movement.
