She has been involved with international exchanges in Sweden, Morocco, and Laos.

June received a GAP Award in 2007 and three 4Culture individual projects grants. She is a 2005 EDGE graduate and participated in artist-in-residencies to Luang Prabang, Laos and the James Washington Foundation. She recently exhibited in the Bellevue Arts Museum Biennial and is represented by ArtXchange Gallery.
