Esther has created a fun and creative class perfect for beginning artists or for more seasoned artists who just want to get a bit messy and have some fun! She has a really unique inspiration source that I had never considered before. I love how she organizes not only her paints but also her painting in a tray so it can easily be moved and put away. Perfect for any dining room table artist! And cutting out the flowers and arranging them just as you would a bouquet is a lot less intimidating than painting the entire composition. Great job, Esther!

Hello, I'm Bley, an artist living in the glorious Midwest. My vibrant and whimsical artwork is done in watercolor, and I am inspired by the fresh florals and vintage charm I spy in my everyday life on a farm. I do freelance work for companies for products ranging from greeting cards, to coffee mugs, to books.

My first watercolor how-to book, Colorways: Watercolor Flowers, will be published December 4, 2018, by QuartoKnows.
