Fraser King was born in Chalfont St. Giles, Buckinghamshire, England in 1969. He studied graphic design and illustration for three years and gained a BA(Hons) in illustration from John Moores University in Liverpool.

He became a full time freelance artist in 1991 and has exhibited throughout the UK, including several highly successful exhibitions at the Llewelyn Alexander Gallery at Waterloo, three one man shows at the Alexander Gallery Bristol, and three with his father Gordon King at the Magee Gallery Belfast.

He has also exhibited at numerous mixed shows across the country. More recently he had a one man show at The Royal Opera House in Covent Garden with paintings of the orchestra in rehearsal.
  Fraser paints a huge variety of subjects from cafés to orchestras in rehearsal, the River Thames and vignettes of London life to Royal Ascot, Glyndebourne, Henley Regatta and seaside scenes. All his paintings embrace his love of depicting the human form. This stems from the years he spent life drawing at Liverpool university.

He has also been influenced by his father Gordon King, internationally reknowned artist and ilustrator, who acted as a mentor in his early years. Fraser's interest in figure drawing is carried through to the many successful portrait commisions he has undertaken.

His paintings have been used for greetings cards for all occasions which are available from John Lewis. He works in all mediums, but is best known for his watercolours.

Fraser lives with his wife and three daughters in South London.
