About the Author
Walter Fordham found his inspiration for Iliana in the Children's Day holiday, established by Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche in the late 1970s for the children of Buddhist families. This holiday celebrates children and childhood, emphasizing that each child can be a king or queen. As a father of two girls and two boys, Walter decided to fulfill a request that had been made long ago for him to tell the story of Children's Day. Walter was born and raised in New Jersey and studied English Literature at Guilford College. He now makes his home in Halifax, Nova Scotia with his wife Joanne, where together they publish the Chronicles of Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche [chronicleproject.com]. Tatjana Krizmanic's brilliant pastel drawings and oil paintings depict ordinary life with a distinctly European sensibility. Krizmanic's work is marked by a warm cheerfulness, where bright colors and swirling perspectives make everyday settings come alive. She brings a touch of magic to commonplace scenes, such as a trip to the farmers' market or morning coffee. Surreal and inventive, her work recalls Chagall, Matisse, Klimt, Picasso - influences she grew up with. Born in Zagreb, Tatjana started painting at age fourteen. After studying at the University of Zagreb, she moved to Washington, D.C. where she completed her studies at Georgetown University. Over the next ten years she worked as an art director while creating paintings for friends and patrons. Since her first exhibit in Boulder, Colorado, she has built a strong following, and her paintings reside in numerous private collections and museums. Her work is shown in galleries in United States, Canada, Europe and Japan. Krizmanic divides her time between her home on the Adriatic coast and Crestone, Colorado.
