About the Artist:

Bitty Ellis-Higdon, aka Souly B, is a self-taught visual artist, currently based in Richmond, Virginia. Her work consists mostly of pop art acrylic paintings with high emphasis on vibrant, eye-catching hues and clean line-work.
In college, Bitty enrolled in an art class that focused on the basic methods and techniques of artistry, however, she decided to beat the norm and construct a path of her own. Bitty’s family moved frequently in her early years and these moves exposed her to many cultures, experiences and perspectives. This is evident in her approach to creating art and displayed through her depiction of subjects, shapes, and colors.

Overall, Bitty’s work is considered bold, risqué and often times provokes strong feminist messages. Many of her paintings include the female form, as her goal is to capture the beauty and essence of women being daring, carefree and confident. As an ambitious and determined artist, Bitty anticipates spreading her artwork on a global scale, supporting and encouraging all women to embrace their boldness and embrace their true personas. She believes this can be achieved by not following societal norms or traditional views of what women are expected to be.

Bitty currently resides in the artistic city of Richmond, VA. She constantly observes and gains insight from the unique creativity that surrounds the city. She strives to create and foster relationships with other artists who she can gain alternative perspectives and develop collaborations.

Bitty is currently accepting commission requests to add her portfolio and can be contacted at
