Artist’s Bio for Emily Fox King

By Linda Hoffman Kimball

Emily Fox King

Emily Fox King grew up in Pasco, Washington. Her first major artwork occurred in kindergarten when she drew a bear wearing a ballet costume with Crayola markers. That was a defining moment for her, when at five year old, she realized she was an artist. Emily earned a degree in painting from Western Washington University in Bellingham, Washington. She later attended Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, and received a graduate degree in printmaking/drawing. She has exhibited throughout the United States, as well as numerous group shows and three solo exhibitions in Utah. Much of her work explores notions of femininity, including domestic spaces and feminized objects. Currently she is working with floral imagery. While keeping a rigorous studio practice, Emily also teaches drawing and painting at Weber State University in Ogden, Utah where she resides with her family.

 

Her work is available for purchase online at Anthropologie.com, Artfullywalls.com, Newvisionart.com, Artsy.net, and Artfulhome.com.
