Welcome to my drawing room! Pull up a chair and join me whenever you can. Here you will find a jumble of art in progress, ideas, musings, nonsense, claptrap. A few snippets and tasty tidbits.
Who Is Golly Bard?
My name is Holly Ward Bimba. I'm the artist behind Golly Bard. In case you are wondering, Golly Bard is a nonsense name. We are a family that is just crazy about nicknames and Golly Bard is one of many that my family has given me over the years!
I am an artist. Just a regular girl with a slightly quirky style. I love to paint, draw, create things and dig in my garden.
I truly appreciate your visit. Do drop by again!
