Jaya King is a California native based out of Sacramento. She is known for her contemporary semi-abstract artworks. Her dynamic paintings marry both balance of technique and personal connection to the viewer. Her natural sense of the abstract winds its way through her organic animal artworks, her subtle subjective landscapes and especially her fierce portraits. Jaya passionately lectures and instructs with an emphasis on technique, personal growth and exploration through art. Her popular hands-on painting workshops give students the opportunity to grow as artists and express their individuality. Her enthusiasm for art is infectious and it propels her and her students down a path of inspiration and understanding through creation. She has been featured in Sacramento Inside Publications magazine. Her work has been published in Splash 11: New Directions, Incite 3: The Best of Mixed Media, and in Art Journey Animals: A Collection of Inspiring Contemporary Masterworks. At age 24 she was invited to do a solo show at Stanford University and is in the permanent collection at the Triton Museum of Art in Santa Clara, California and the Museum of Encaustic Art in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
