Our Designs - Original and Hand Drawn by Myself here in Western NC

Hello again! My name is Melissa, and I would like to take a moment to reintroduce myself as the owner of Appalachian Bittersweet and the artist behind all of our designs.

Grand Canyon Art

I have always been an artist and love to express my joy and interest in the outdoors through artistic expression. My MFA and time spent as a college art instructor have led me to feeling joy in the process of creating, and these apparel designs allow me to combine the arts with one of my biggest passions.

My creative process typically begins with digital, free hand sketching in which I work to capture the unique aspects and characteristics of the National Park I’ve been inspired by. Often this inspiration comes from a hike or personal experience, so you will see many of our amazing parks here in Western NC featured in my work! From there I will edit or adjust as needed in Illustrator until I have the final design that feels right.

  • Hey, this is Eric and I ran across a few minutes ago.

    Looks great… but now what?

    By that I mean, when someone like me finds your website – either through Search or just bouncing around – what happens next? Do you get a lot of leads from your site, or at least enough to make you happy?

    Honestly, most business websites fall a bit short when it comes to generating paying customers. Studies show that 70% of a site’s visitors disappear and are gone forever after just a moment.

    Here’s an idea…

    How about making it really EASY for every visitor who shows up to get a personal phone call you as soon as they hit your site…

    You can –

    Talk With Web Visitor is a software widget that’s works on your site, ready to capture any visitor’s Name, Email address and Phone Number. It signals you the moment they let you know they’re interested – so that you can talk to that lead while they’re literally looking over your site.

    CLICK HERE to try out a Live Demo with Talk With Web Visitor now to see exactly how it works.

    You’ll be amazed – the difference between contacting someone within 5 minutes versus a half-hour or more later could increase your results 100-fold.

    It gets even better… once you’ve captured their phone number, with our new SMS Text With Lead feature, you can automatically start a text (SMS) conversation.

    That way, even if you don’t close a deal right away, you can follow up with text messages for new offers, content links, even just “how you doing?” notes to build a relationship.

    Pretty sweet – AND effective.
