The Darling Bower is a curation of botanical watercolor paintings and custom goods by me, Jessica Hale. Using original illustrations, I create artisanal and handmade products such as tea towels, greeting cards, gift wrap, and fine art prints.
Everything I make, from compostable packaging to reusable products, is thoughtfully crafted with sustainability in mind and a heart to gently care for and celebrate the natural beauty of the earth.
This work is inspired by bower birds, tiny creatures who devote their whole life to making incredible and elaborate nests. Like these birds, I believe it is valuable and important to spend time simply making our world a more beautiful place. My prayer is that my faithfulness to creating good, true, and beautiful work brings others light and joy.
I work from my home studio in Bristol, Pa where I have the privilege (and challenge!) of balancing my work time with my greatest earthly joy, my family.
