Born in 1954, Susan King grew up in Toronto and received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Mount Allison University, and a Masters of Fine Arts degree from York University. After graduation, King opened XOX Artist’s Postcards, a retail store whose stock was comprised of a variety of art postcards designed by both Canadian and international artists. By 1981, King was commissioning, publishing and distributing her own line of artists’ postcards through the store. Since 1983, and continuing throughout her career, King has contributed photographs on a freelance basis to Now Magazine, The Globe and Mail, MacLean’s, Toronto Life, Canadian Business, Image Nation, Broadcast Week, and Elm Street. In addition to her freelance photojournalism work, King has been featured in numerous solo and group exhibitions in galleries throughout Canada, as well as internationally in New York City, Philadelphia, Duluth, Krakow, Poland, San Juan, and Merida. Her work has been included in the collections of the National Archives of Canada, the Art Bank, The Lynnwood Art Centre, and The Canadian Museum of Contemporary Photography.
