We had the good fortune of connecting with Bitter Darlings and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Bitter Darlings, how do you think about risk?
I have no fear, everything meant to tear me down has already happened to me. Therefore, I believe in taking risks and doing all actions one can in order to become the best version of yourself. The only way I am able to overcome any obstacle is by taking risks and making efforts toward achieving my goals. I believe that my talent is just too overwhelmingly great that anything else simply doesn’t matter. That’s how I have to think to overcome the impossible.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I am a self-taught artist and go by the name Bitter Darlings. My artistic journey began as a form of therapy and is one of the bravest things I’ve done in my whole life. Being an artist in itself is a very vulnerable act. My goal as an artist is to celebrate and represent women through my art, women who get up and get it done, live life to the fullest, and crave wonder and grace all while giving back and making a difference. I call these works of art “Bitter Darlings” because they embody whimsical, messy versions of perfectly imperfect beauty and capture how dynamic we are in a way that oftentimes cannot be adequately described with words.

My paintings highlight the importance of inclusivity, equality, and our own unique being. I don’t think there is anything more definitive of beauty than acceptance and understanding. I find that very intriguing. Bitter Darlings are greatly inspired by women who rise to their full potential and represent empowerment. It is my hope that they encourage you to be joyous and fearless. I love being a woman artist and making art that romanticizes pain, confidence, and rebellion. My art tells people to freely express and believe in themselves and know that you can always start over and began new and positive and happy life experiences from difficult times.

Whenever a purchase is made, I am filled with pride because of the connection that is created between art and soul. From original paintings to wearable art Bitter Darlings is certain to have pieces that will inspire a stylish lifestyle. by purchasing Bitter Darlings, you’re helping to support and empower women.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
If my best friend was visiting the city I would take them to the botanical garden, the museum exhibits, rooftop restaurants, high end bars/lounges, ratchet clubs, sit courtside at a game, comedy club, all the things. I’m more of a free spirit so having an itinerary doesn’t align with my soul. I definitely have excellent taste when it comes to the vibes.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I would like to dedicate this shoutout to my family, besties, Comfiart, and the Culture Candy for pouring into me.
