HMS Beagle

I'm releasing six watercolor paintings from this little series I worked on 
about Charles Darwin's great expedition and voyage aboard the Beagle.
Take a peek in my Etsy shop today.

Studio Days

A little peek inside my studio on these warm summer days.
I've been busy working on an illustration project about Charles Darwin's 
discoveries during his great voyage on the Beagle.
You can see some sneak peeks on my instagram feed: @gollybard.

Gloaming collection
Gloaming in pearlwood
gloaming in sweetfern
tiger moths in pearlwood
My latest collection of nature inspired abstract and geometric patterns!
Gloaming is available in two colorways: pearlwood and sweetfern. 
There are two sizes of tiger moths and whirls to choose from, 
each with a slightly different color variation.
Fabric, wallpaper and gift wrap can be purchased through Spoonflower.
I had so much fun with these patterns! 
They are a little different from my previous designs
and it was fun to try something new. 
I hope you you like them!
