Art is one of those things that's hard to define. One person might love what someone else doesn't love. Is a thing called art because it seems really hard to do, like an elaborate sculpture, or not art because it seems really easy to make, like a squiggle on a piece of paper? To me, at least, what's art and what isn't is pretty simple. Art is anything that makes someone feel something. Possibly a good something, possibly an uncomfortable something, but always a something.
~ Harper in Follow Your Art

Harper is a minor character from Trolls, and a recurring character in Trolls: The Beat Goes On! and Trolls: TrollsTopia.



Harper is a Troll with bright turquoise skin and a blue nose. Many different-colored paint splotches cover her body, such as the yellow, pink, and dark blue. The splotches also cover up her long, ultramarine hair. Harper's eyes both appear to be different colors, which suggests that she has heterochromia iridium; her right eye is red, while her left eye is green. She wears a cream dress with a light brown button, and a pocket with what seems to be pink and yellow crayons or paint brushes.

Harper's model is smaller than the average Troll in Trolls; in fact, it's an edited child Troll model. The result is that certain details of her design don't match promotional art such as the length of her hair.

Harper mostly looks the same as she did in Trolls, but is scaled to an adult size and has significantly shorter hair. The paint on her face is larger and covers more of it, though this is likely a simplification of her overall design to make her easier to animate.


Harper's design has changed significantly since Trolls: The Beat Goes On!, most notably with a rearrangement of the paint on her hair and face. Overall, her model is more accurate to the one she had in Trolls now.

Skills & Abilities

She has most normal Troll abilities.


Harper's talent (and favorite hobby) is art, and she's a painter. She's skilled in doing normal, expression and abstraction paintings over the course of her appearances in Trolls: The Beat Goes On!.

Besides painting, she can also draw, which is seen in The Giver. Her profiling skills are very exceptional. In the episode, Sky Toronto gave her a description of "the body of a warrior, earlobes of a poet, butt that shimmers like the night sky". Despite this vague description and not knowing that he was talking about himself, Harper still managed to draw Sky.


Harper is seen in DJ's Got Talent using art supplies in relationship to DJ-ing during Talent Week.


  • Harper is one of the first Trolls to be introduced to the franchise, being its first protagonist due to her role in Follow Your Art.
  • Harper's name means "Harp Player" and has no relationship to the character. This is one of the few names within the Dreamworks Trolls series that has no relation to the character itself.
  • Harper is the only named Troll in the DVD Extras menu on the Trolls disk that actually appeared in the Trolls movie itself.
  • In some versions of the Trolls movie, Harper is labelled as "Painter Troll" in the voice cast credits.
  • In Trolls: The Beat Goes On!, she uses a paintbrush for painting, despite other media saying that she uses her hair to paint with.
