Description June Selznick Drutz was a Canadian painter and printmaker. She was a member of the Royal Canadian Academy, the Canadian Society of Painters in Water Colour, and the Ontario Society of Artists. Drutz is interested in the paradoxes of the home. When she started to paint interiors, she wanted to depict the conflicting feelings of being drawn to comfort, while being confined to a space. Using the elements of an architectural space, Drutz blurred the boundaries between the outside and the inside.
