About

Hello, I'm Amber King Bounds. I am an abstract painter who lives in Charlotte, NC. I was born in South Carolina and raised in North Carolina, so I am a southern girl through and through. I come from a family of hard working folks, some who are entrepreneurs themselves. My grandmother and mother are very crafty and I have learned a lot from their experiences. My grandfather taught me how to draw my first star as a small child (that kinda blew my mind at the time). My father has shown me that hard work, dedication and loyalty to your community will most certainly help you prosper (and if it doesn't, you just keep trying).

I can recall some moments throughout my childhood when I would often sketch my neighbor's houses, people and flowers. It wasn't until after high school that I discovered decoupage and painting. I had a few art shows in the Raleigh area and decided that I wanted to study art…

I can recall some moments throughout my childhood when I would often sketch my neighbor's houses, people and flowers. It wasn't until after high school that I discovered decoupage and painting. I had a few art shows in the Raleigh area and decided that I wanted to study art some more in school. I eventually moved to Charlotte and graduated with a Bachelor's in Art and a Minor in Art History from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. I am now back at UNCC for a Graduate Certificate in Art Education. Not only do I love creating art, I love to teach it too!

Amber King Creations currently consists of my original paintings and sculptures. I am thankful to you for taking the time to read my story and explore my art.

Much thanks,
Amber King Bounds
