Amery Bohling is recognized for her skill and strong determination and it is no wonder.   Her work vividly portrays the enduring strength of the West’s landscapes while skillfully capturing it's light.  The combination is old world and new West.  Naturally drawn to the art world and outdoor adventure, Bohling pursues the fine art of landscape painting, preferring remote, rugged and often complex terrains for her subjects.  Amery’s appreciation of the environment comes from “a desire to paint the landscape in its natural state and to preserve these beautiful locations for others to enjoy and future artists to visit.”  

She obtained a fine arts degree from University of Arizona, which included a year abroad at the Marchutz School of Art in Aix en Provence, France, where she pursued a more formal art education.  While in France, she studied plein air landscape under the tradition of French impressionists. In addition, Bohling studied at the Scottsdale Artists School where she received a strong foundation from skilled instructors.

Bohling received the Allied Artists of America Fall 2008 Exhibition’s Alden Bryan Memorial Medal Award for traditional landscape painting in New York and in 2007 their John Young Hunter Memorial Award.  In April 2006, she received California Art Club's 95th Annual Gold Medal Show Emerging Artist Award sponsored by American Artist Magazine.  She was awarded a scholarship from Stanley R and Robert E Wright Foundation for the Arts.

She is featured as a rising young star in American Artists June 2006 issue. She is featured in American Art Collector's February 2006 issue on Leading Ladies. In September of 2002, Bohling is recognized in Southwest Art Magazine's '21 artists under 31' with promising careers and again in a Sept. 2004 follow-up article.
