Golly Bard also known as Holly Ward Bimba is a Virginia based artist who makes these beautiful watercolor illustrations inspired by animals, insects and plants. She says, "I'm slightly obsessed with natural history, anatomy, things in jars, garden maps, miniatures of the mughal dynasty, weather systems, fashion, portraits, wallpaper, calligraphy, and patterns." Her work has been featured on Southern Living, Martha Stewart, Western Living and Real Simple, and several other blogs.

I am obsessed with her owls. I love the colors and the intricate patterns, I could stare at these for hours. To know about her new work, you can follow her blog.
