“Happy are the painters, for they shall not be lonely. Light and colour, peace and hope, will keep them company to the end, or almost to the end, of the day.”

Winston Churchill

Welcome to Esther Bley:

Watercolor Art and Supply for Creative Living

Hello!  I am Bley Hack, a watercolor artist living and working on our family flower farm in the heart of the Midwest.  From fresh florals, to lettering, novelty, and patterns, my hand-painted watercolors marry a modern whimsy with the brightest vintage charm. Want to learn to watercolor with me?

Would you like to learn the joys of watercolor, but not sure where to start on your own? Join one of my monthly workshops-in-a-box. Each month I create a box full of handmade watercolors specially curated to match our project, plus the watercolor paper and brush you need to complete the painting. Delivered right to your door with links to join my Live tutorial, you can easily jump right in to the painterly fun. Learn more here, or visit my Shop to see the current month’s box.

Watercolor with me from your kitchen table…

In addition to my workshops-in-a-box and local teaching, I have a You Tube channel where you can view tutorials for free. There are also a number of other watercolor education resources here on my Learn page.
