King is a self-taught artist whose ability to speak declined by the age of four, and by the age of eight stopped speaking altogether. She has methodically created an entire analogous world through extraordinary drawings using pen, graphite, colored pencil, crayon and ink.
King drew prolifically through to the early 1990s and then without reason suddenly she stopped. King renewed drawing in 2008 when documentary film maker Dan Salmon began filming her and her art.
"Art collector and "curator Peter Fay discovered her work and curated a solo show for her in Sydney in 2009. In 2013 King showed at the prestigious Paris Outsider Art Fair. In 2015 she had her first solo US show Drawings from Many Worlds at the Andrew Edlin Gallery in New York. In July 2016, King's debut museum exhibition opened at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Miami.
