Born in Poland and raised in Germany, Zofie King came to the US in 1998. After graduating with a psychology degree in 2002, she studied the interdisciplinary craft at Towson University, then worked in interior design while taking classes at MICA and the Corcoran, and devoted herself to her studio art practice in 2012.
King is primarily a sculptor who uses found objects, but she incorporates various media including molded paper, resin, fabrics, black acrylic, encaustic, watercolor, cyanotypes, and LED lights. She assembles pieces into psychological cabinets of curiosity that examine beliefs, perceptions, and lore.
Artist has had solo shows at the NVCC Margaret W. Fisher Art Gallery, DC Arts Center, Mount St. Mary's University Gallery, and Hillyer. She was part of the Sparkplug Collective from 2017-2019 and is currently a member of the Washington Sculptor's Group. Her work is part of numerous private collections.
