Nina Bolen
Artist | Professional | Artisan Crafts
United States
My name is Nina Bolen, & I live in East TX with my husband & our many animals. When I'm not working with animals I create art.

I've become best know for my whimsical fantasy artwork of dragons & other mythical creatures.

I grew up watching the Dark Crystal & Labyrinth, and Jim Henson's The Story Teller & Fraggle Rock where my favorite shows. So it's natural that my artwork would be inspired by Brian Froud, Wendy Froud & Jim Henson. I have loved fantasy artwork my whole life, and it revolves around everything I do.

I have also won awards for my one-of-a-kind artwork. My artwork can be seen in publications such as, Teddy Bears & Friends Magazine, Teddy Bear Review, Bird Talk, Dollums Magazine, just to name a few.

I studied fine art/sculpting/illustration at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, but I still considers myself largely a self-taught artist.

Today I sell mostly online. Items like, needle felted plush, artist bears, custom plush, OOAK (one-of-a-kind) sculptures, ATC/ACEOs and fantasy art.
I am also available for free-lance illustrations, book covers, licensing & custom orders.

Do you think you could give your opinion on my journal? Recently an art teacher has decided that customizing model horses is not art, and I'd like to know the public's opinion about model horse customs as a form of art. Thanks!…
