ebecca King is a fine art photographer from New Zealand. Her vision is to create a collection of sensitive silent moments, inspired by symbolism and folklore, capturing stories of nature, some full of whimsical intrigue, others more painterly botanical, always attempting to make something beautiful.
Her creative path began with paints and a brush, but she moved on to her greater love, photography, in 2018. Still wishing to use this medium in an artistic way, she picked up a camera and started experimenting. “This has become a new way of painting; all though instead of painting with pigments I paint with light.”
Rebecca believes as artists we can turn our dreams into reality. She feels her recent works come from a place of layering, intuition, and experimentation and exist somewhere in between painting and photography.
“A WORLD WHERE EVERYTHING IS
“Creating brings me a sense of peace and offers a place to let dreams and ideas become a reality, my highest goal is to convey that same feeling of serenity and magic to my audience, offering a window to a world where everything and anything is possible.”
She has sold her works in several group exhibitions, was published 4 years running in the NZ Camera Book, and has also received her PSNZ Licentiate Honours.
“Nature is an inexhaustible source of inspiration, not subject to fads and trends; it has a timeless beauty.”
This vision inspires her print collections.
