About Me

My name is David King. I am the one responsible for the many creations shown on these pages. I have been creating ever since I was a child : drawing and building with Lego were my media of choice back then. I eventually branched off into using acrylic, watercolour, Chinese ink and then digital software. Every day, I am either pushing paint around a canvas or wood surface or pushing pixels around an illuminated computer screen. I feel a strong need to channel my creative energy into various avenues and you may browse some images of the results here on my website.

I live in the small village of Dorchester, New Brunswick (between Sackville and Moncton). Previously I had lived in Halifax, Nova Scotia for thirteen years. I was born in the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador (near St. John's) in 1971, however I spent most of my childhood years living in Nova Scotia.


For me, the main reason to create is to discover new things. Any creative activity must not have a fully known result or it becomes uninteresting. Even within my typically more organized designs, there is much room throughout the whole process for discovery as I go.

Over the last 20 years or so of selling my paintings, I have had my creations carried off to distant places around the world. They are somewhere out there adorning walls in many places within Canada and the United States, England, Ireland, Iceland, Germany, Malta, Singapore, Japan, Australia, New Zealand and other countries. I would like to thank all of the people from various locations for their support of what I do. I enjoy the fact that people get something out of my work and I hope to have my paintings reach many more people in the coming years.
