"It didn’t take long until the influence of working with other artists started to affect my photography," King wrote in his biography. "Soon I started incorporating unconventional techniques into my photographs.
"Printing on wet papers with conventional inkjet printers, hand painting in details, scratching out others, layering in multiple images and more. My images continued to take on more and more painterly qualities until, eventually I found myself in front of a blank canvas with brush in hand.
"In the following years the boundaries between photography and painting continued to blur. I discovered that having the ability, knowledge and talent to move in, out and in-between these formats kept the creative mind busy, lively and productive. If I hit a wall in one, the other rises to the forefront and the ebb and flow works wonderfully for me."
Six years later King sold that gallery to open The Muse Fine Art Gallery in Denver. A couple years later and finding little time to create his own art, King sold that gallery, too.
In his biography, King cites his influences: Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele, Fritz Scholder, Picasso, Lance Green and Christian Dore. His photopgrahic works range from tintype and digital.
"I have spent the past several years concentrating my efforts inward instead of outward," King wrote in his biography. "Working and selling out of my home studio in Colorado Springs and representing myself, I feel that I have finally reached that point where it is time for me to seek gallery representation and just be the artist I was always meant to be."
