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.

Well sadly I don't do needle felting anymore :( My hands can't take it. Also sadly right now with moving & my kickstarted project I won't have time for a trade for awhile.
