About

I’m Kimber Smith, CANDLE ARTIST, & owner of The Outer Banks Candle Company in Kitty Hawk, NC. I’m a mother of 5, married to a pastor & I have a degree in ART. I started this candle business in 2008 with 3 very young children (4, 2 & newborn… that was crazy!) It all began with a passion to create unique & beautiful candles.

I am inspired by the beauty & peacefulness of the coast… the colors, the ocean’s treasures & the changing seasons… believing that the right candle can evoke the same peace & simplicity that inspired it.The Outer Banks Candle Company is very much a FAMILY business. My children have grown up around the candle studio, “helping” & learning the craft!

These days, with the help of a small team of candle makers, we continue to pour all of your candles by hand with great care & attention. And I hope you love them as much as we have loved making them! You can read more about our candle-making process and the story of how it all started here.
