Hi and Welcome!
My name is Nina Bolen, and I'm the creator behind Happy Dragons, a cute collectable line of little dragon figurines. 



I also like to sculpt animals and fantasy creatures.

Rewards:
All Patrons will have unlimited access to all work in progress, behind the scenes photos, and sketches. Plus a personal one on one to ask me questions, tips and advice.
 Be sure to check out the rewards for more goodies!
Patrons will be the first to see new work in progress art, and have access to tutorials before anyone else and even Patron exclusive tutorials! 


Where will the money go?
The money will be used for the goals.  Basic art supplies, things I would need to fulfill the rewards for monthly pledges, shipping expenses for rewards, etc.  And hopefully a new camera so I can do better tutorials! Money will also help the bird rescue! It will help with things like food, vet bills, cages, & toys. 

So aside from sculpting happy dragons & other creatures I love to draw & paint. I will now be taking small commissions via Patreon. While working on a dragon & fantasy creature themed coloring books. Want coloring pages & other goodies? Check out the reward info for new rewards targeted toward my coloring book projects.  




About me:
I live in East TX with my husband & our many animals. I run a small non-profit bird rescue, so needless to say I stay pretty busy. I've been working with exotic animals most of my life, and I've worked as a vet tech, and zookeeper in the past. I was a licensed wildlife rehabber, and ran a large reptile & exotic animal rescue for about 7 years. So when I'm not working with animals I create art! I've been creating art for as long as I can remember. Like artwork of dragons, fairies, goblins, animals and more!  
A few birds at the rescue.
