Born: 3rd June 1931, Plymouth, England, UK.

Died: 7th June 1999, Deià, Mallorca, Spain.

British experimental artist, avant-garde musician, poet and 'wild-child' of the 60s & 70s. Later an activist and Spanish resident, supportive of the propagation of the 'Canterbury Scene'.

Cramer, having studied at art school in the '50s, spent much of her teenage years in and around the Spanish hideout of Deià, rubbing shoulders with the rich and famous in the bohemian lifestyle of the sixties. She became the catalyst to the meeting of Texan millionaire Wes Brunson and island inhabitants [a10354] and [a45646] who were visitors to [a515781]' home, which led to the eventual formation of [a152680].

Cramer, following an art career as 'June Onion' began exhibiting in the UK and her work gradually began to develop a multimedia form of presentation. Many of the retinue that became known as 'The Canterbury Scene' could be found lodging at her London residence in Maida Vale, or involved in her gigs in the early '70s. Now known as 'Lady June' she had a residency at London's 'Electric Cinema', performed at The Roundhouse in the International Festival Of Experimental Sound and appeared at The Paradiso in Amsterdam among the [a282968] & [a119009] gigs. Her avant-garde style was fused with works by a wide variety of artists such as [a4452], [a84684], [a239930] and [a51850]. Her experimental tapes were employed in a BBC Radiophone Workshop performance and she featured in other BBC appearances. It was at [a258438]'s birthday party in Lady June's flat in 1973 that [a5049] suffered his paralyzing fall from a window.

As 'Lady Jane', Cramer continued her contributions to music and art and involvement with members of [a10346], working primarily from her Spanish home. Her work was part of a 'Fifty Years Of Deyan Art' broadcast on Spanish TV and arts festival in 1987. She died suddenly, in the midst of a long-term creation of work entitled 'Rebela' which, it is hoped, will emerge with the aid of musician [a249461].
