Judy M. King was born in West Palm Beach, Florida, USA. She is the only child of her maître d’hôtel/father Eric and her museum artist/mother Helga. Helga transmitted her love of visual art to Judy, laying the foundation for the artist she would become. Regrettably, a busy high-tech career left little time for Judy to create art.
Judy’s memorial website for Helga’s extensive multimedia art culminated in a major purchase by and 2021-2022 exhibition at Yad Vashem: The World Holocaust Remembrance Center in Jerusalem, Israel. Together Judy and Jack Wild, founders of the photography program at the Boca Raton Museum of Art, created a highly successful and growing online and offline community of fine-art photographers. Judy’s work appears on JudyMKing.com, in group and solo exhibitions, in international photography books and magazines, and garners recognition in international photography competitions. Judy is available for presentations, workshops, critiques, and curation.
Aesthetic, eclectic, clever, and sometimes quirky describe Judy M. King’s art and the photographer. Judy embraces clean design, high impact, and novelty in many of her photos. She creates images that challenge perceptions and pose further questions by immortalizing the eye-catching and seldom-seen over the traditional and recognizable. Some of Judy’s joys include making unconventional cropping decisions and capturing movement, glorious color, and costumed people. Noteworthy are her multi-panel images. Judy often includes wordplay and cultural references in her titles. Influences include God and a long list of photographers, digital artists, architects, fashion designers, painters, poets, and comedians.
