Jody King

Working primarily in egg tempera, these works exemplify an illusive medium that is 2,000 years old. Combining egg yolk, dry pigments and distilled water in multiple layers, this medium allows one to develop a finished piece of artwork that produces veils of colors. The process takes five seconds to dry and one year to harden. The pieces are then sprayed with a varnish (matte or glossy) in order to seal the surface. Because egg tempera is organic, it is necessary to protect it from being destroyed by outside elements.


Jody King has taught drawing for over twenty years and now resides in Ruidoso, New Mexico in her studio. Having discovered egg tempera eighteen years ago, she strives to maintain the quality of such an exquisite medium continually.
