Who's Dear Darling?
Hi! I'm Darra, The owner and Artist of dear darling. i have been making art for as long as I can remember. From a young age, everyone knew this is what i was meant to do. In high school, i had an amazing mentor that took me under her wing, and by senior year i was with her 5 periods a day. She taught me so much about creating art and fueled my fire. I had a really rough childhood, and art was my therapy, my way out. I am so happy that i found it! Over the years i have dabbled in multiple art forms. Watercolor, portraiture, calligraphy, hand lettering, stationery design, branding, art licensing and more. i love doing it all and i think that my style is what ties it all together and makes it cohesive.
now a days, when i'm not working, I'm probably watching true crime or working on a personal painting just for fun. I am a mama to 2 little boys. I live for reese cups, ben and jerry's (it has to be milk n cookies) and cheese fries. I am just a baltimore girl, that gets to do what she loves every single day.. and i'm so grateful you're here.
