Wayne King’s images are a celebration of life, blending the real and the surreal to achieve a sense of place or time that reaches beyond the moment into a dreamlike quintessentialism designed to spark an emotional response. Using digital enhancement, handcrafting, painting, and sometimes even straight photography, King takes the viewer to a place that is beyond simple truth to where truth meets passion, hope and dreams.
King holds a BS Degree in Environmental Conservation and a Masters Degree in Science Education from the University of New Hampshire, Durham. While at the University of NH King studied photography under Richard Merritt. His colleagues from those heady days today are among the most noted artists: Edward Acker, Stephen Hoedecker, Steve Bliss, Christopher Polydoroff to name just a few.
A three term former State Senator from New Hampshire, Wayne King was the 1994 Democratic nominee for Governor. King is also the founder of The Electronic Community, a group of social entrepreneurs working on social and development issues in Africa under the non-profit umbrella of the MaxImpact Institute.
Senator King has served on the Board of Directors of many state and local organizations: he was a founding member of the NH Community Loan Fund, and served for almost 15 years on the board of the Northern Community Investment Corporation, one of America's foremost Community Development Corporations.
