King's narrative vessels, tiled furniture and printmaking, either presented individually, or combined in installation, present narratives from a feminist point of view. Her ultimate objective is to translate her own experience, specifically as a contemporary woman, in relation to social culture dealing with such issues as sexual orientation, reproduction and issues of the body and gender. Her imagery, reminiscent of an underground comic book style, uses satirical humor, irony and sarcasm to map her journey from pubescence to menopause.
