MJ King

MJ King is a local artist and began exhibiting her paintings and drawings in 2011. King was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio and received her Bachelors of Fine Art at Bowling Green State University. She also studied at Studio Art Center International (SACI) in Florence, Italy during the summer of 2012. In 2016, she graduated with her Masters of Fine Art from Clemson University. King’s work has been shown throughout the United States. She was the recipient of the Naomi Winston Scholarship in Art, The Frederick and Priscilla Schwier SACI Award, and the Clemson University’s Art Departments Research Scholarship. In her words, “The ability to capture a moment or tell a story is what makes art personal and powerful. This understanding has been a foundational part of my life ever since I first began sketching at a young age, starting with Disney characters and drawing the figure with my cousin as a model in the backyard.”
