Larkey, the daughter of American singer-songwriter Carole King and bass player Charles Larkey,[1] was educated at Columbia University and Rutgers University.[2] She is a sculptor working with a variety of materials whose work references formalism and abstraction combined with symbolic imagery and bright colours.[3] She is concerned with the way in which art functions as a means of communication.[4] She has made pencil copies of drawings and manuscript pages of famous writers who have committed suicide.[5]

She has had a solo exhibition at P.S.1.[6]

She is based in Brooklyn, in New York City.
