Nina Bolen (featherheart) Profile
About / Bio
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 & The Labyrinth over and over again, 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, or should I say everything I do revolves around it ^_^.
I have 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, because well I never finished school sadly (thou I do hope to go back someday) and I'm not doing what I went to school for. My grandmother showed me how to use a sewing machine & I went to town making things. I love making tiny goblin clothing!
I am available for free-lance illustrations, book covers, licensing & some custom orders.
