About


Hello!  I am Esther Bley, an artist living in the glorious Midwest.  My passions are people (mom of 6 here), paint (always watercolor) and petals (small-scale flower farmer).  My artwork is inspired by all things vintage and lovely on the farm to create designs for commercial products.  Teaching fills me up, and I love to spread the joys of watercolor and floral painting in my classes and workshops in a box.  On most days, you can find me chasing kids, obsessing over the gardens, and putting paint to paper.

Some of my clients include American Greetings, Design House Greetings, John Lewis, Papyrus, Quarto Publishing, Design Design, Inc., Seaman Paper, Art in Motion, Calypso Cards, Lifetime Brands, TAG Ltd., and VCNY Home.

If you are an art director looking for artwork, I would be pleased to show you more!  Email me: bley[at]estherbley.com, or visit a sampling from my Portfolio here.
