About the Artist

Judith Berk King is an artist and educator. She studied fine art at Kensington and Chelsea College in London, England, and received her MFA from Miami International University of Art and Design, Miami, Florida where she is currently full-time faculty. Her studio is located in the Bakehouse Art Center.

Artist's Statement

As an artist, I focus on the creation and display of curious zoological and botanical structures. The objects constructed may live somewhere in the present or may exist in the future. The style of the work may be contemporary or recall the work of scientific illustrators of the past, transcending time.
