Rebecca Emily Darling is a writer and multidisciplinary artist whose work explores themes of trauma, grief, mental illness, personal mythology, and those moments when our subconscious breaks into our reality. She grew up in a yellow Victorian house in Massachusetts, where she was raised by two eccentric but brilliant academics who instilled in her a great love of reading, writing, and maximalist interior design. Her creative nonfiction essays have been published on Modern Loss, HuffPost, and HelloGiggles.
At nineteen years old, Rebecca began working full time in Downtown LA's' underground vintage clothing scene before branching out to found her own online business, Rococo Vintage. She now works as a brand storyteller and freelance copywriter and graphic designer. Her hobbies include making miniature heads out of clay and taking online classes in ancient death mythologies.
Rebecca is currently at work on a speculative memoir about fairy tales, generational trauma, and her loving but tumultuous relationship with her mother, who was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease and dementia when Rebecca was a young adult. She lives in Los Angeles with her husband and their cat, Mervyn Leedle, who is vaguely internet famous.
