Suzy King is a contemporary realist painter based in Sydney, Australia.
She began as a student of renowned artist, Clem Millward, then went on to the Sydney Institute Design Centre to study design, illustration and photography, graduating with a Bachelor of Design in Visual Communications. For many years she practised as an award-winning designer in various corporate areas, but she always continued to paint.

Suzy has been painting full-time for eleven years – mainly urban, industrial and coastal subjects.  Using photographs taken at various times of day and in different light conditions, Suzy draws on her design background to compose and manipulate the images. Using these as reference she creates representational oil paintings but with a contemporary edge.
She has had successful exhibitions in Sydney and regional galleries. She is an exhibiting member of the Australian Society of Marine Artists (ASMA). Her paintings are held by collectors in Australia and worldwide.
