Biographical Information Renee’ King, born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania has had an interest in art for as long as she can remember. She received a lot of encouragement from both her parents and grandmother to pursue a career in art. She has won several awards from various art shows, including a certificate from the governor for her talent.

King went on to study at Tyler School of Fine Art with a partial scholarship. While in college, she had the opportunity to work with a variety of mediums. Her paintings and sculptures were displayed in several exhibitions around campus.

As a Graphic Artist in the Marine Corps, she painted murals in the 3 main barracks at Quantico, Virginia. The unit she was assigned to was the Training and Audiovisual Support Center where she did screen printing, portraits with bios, cartoons, cartography and a variety of other graphics. King received a letter of appreciation from the Commandant of the Marine Corps for her artwork.

For the past 19 years, King has been working as the Art Director for Kerley Signs, Inc. producing sign designs, layouts, hand lettering, airbrush, technical drawings, photo collages, and web sites. While she can appreciate the technical aspect of all this and has mastered the programs necessary, her true love is still creating original art pieces.

Since moving to Florida 6 years ago, her creative spark has been rekindled. King has been getting a lot of inspiration from the beautiful variety of tropical flowers and the beaches. She now spends a lot of her time in her studio working with watercolor pencils, oils and acrylics.

King is a member of the Central Brevard Art Association (also the new webmaster) as well as a member of the Brevard Cultural Alliance.
