Della Burford Author / Illustrator / Speaker http://www.dellaburford.com
About MeI facilitate art & writing workshops internationally around my books. A creative art and learning experience integrating storytelling, and sharing my paintings and books - incorporating many kinds of literary and art techniques. The art making is child or if adults ( teachers) inner child focused and process orientated. It culminates in a celebration and showcase of the work done.

"Dodoland"​ emphasized Imagination, "Magical Earth Secrets"​- environment, "Miracle Galaxy"​- healing & angels, Dreams Keys and Dream Wheels"​ - dreams including a 40 year history of my dreams which have been manifested. Plays of my books have performed at the Museum of Natural History, B.A.M., Smithsonian, 3rd St. Music School, hospitals ( Sloan Kettering, Metropolitan Hospital and Children's Hospital) and schools. They were performing for 7 years in N.Y.C. I also personally storytell my books and design workshops from there on both writing and art tailored to individual groups. My paintings/stories have been in as well as Canada and U.S.A. in Guatemala, Mexico, England, Holland, Austria, Korea, Japan & Bali. In 1979 6,000 copies of Dodoland were gifted to needy children. In 1995 an ezine was created called Dodoland on the internet and has had one million people visit it .

In surviving a health crisis I created Miracle Galaxy'​- a story of healing with eight angels who help those in crisis. All the Angels represent the chakras of the body and the goal is to create health ,happiness and healing. In Dodoland we have the Miracle Castle for the Angels.

I have led workshops in 300 different schools from for 15 years , these were as an Inner City Angel in Toronto & grants with the Ontario Arts Council .I later led Art Residency program for Vancouver Schools and presently am part of the Arts Starts program. I storytell and lead workshops to encourage both children and adults to be imaginative, love the environment, create from travels and dreams, and create their own healing stories. One is called "Make an Angel". I am open to presenting more internationally .

I have been a member of the Writers Union of Canada for 30 years. I have shown my art in many group and one woman show. The latest two one- woman shows were with Karja Art Space in Bali with my Dream paintings. I am presently the Western Canadian Representative for Art of Imagination. With this group I have shown in Ottawa, Montreal at the Eco-Museum and in Peru. In 2017 I organized a show of 30 Society for Art of Imagination artists work in Bali as well as leading workshops and in the Spring will be part of their One Art Space show in New York City in April/May 2017.

Glen Huser Author / Illustrator / Speaker http://www.glenhuser.com
About MeIf there is anything better than a life immersed in literature, I’m not sure what it is. My early love of reading and drawing led me to pursue a career as a teacher-librarian, artist, and an author of books for readers of all ages. In Edmonton I developed a magazine (“Magpie”) of children’s writing and illustrations and was writer-in-residence at a number of the city’s schools. Winning a Governor-General’s Award for my young adult novel Stitches opened many doors. I have lived in Vancouver since 2004 where I’ve continued to visit schools, conduct workshops, and create books for children and young adults. Recently I have been writing the text and lyrics for a series of picture books (packaged with a CD featuring a massed chorus of 200 Montreal schoolchildren) retelling familiar Greek myths.

About MeI am one the co-creators (along with my twin brother, Jack) of the popular board book series Cozy Classics (Chronicle Books) and Star War Epic Yarns (Chronicle Books). Both series abridge beloved stories into just 12 words and 12 needle felted illustrations. Our books have been featured by many media outlets, including The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, People, Parents, The Telegraph, The Guardian, The Globe and Mail, Huffington Post, Apartment Therapy, NPR, Fox News, and CBC.

I grew up in Vancouver, Canada, and was briefly a middle school teacher. Now, in addition to creating kids books, I'm also a part-time lawyer.

I have a bachelor of science from the University of Toronto, as well as an education degree, a masters degree (architecture history) and a law degree from the University of British Columbia.

I still live in Vancouver with my wife, Amy, and our two children. When I'm not making books, I can be found playing mediocre ice hockey or even worse guitar.

Karen Hibbard Illustrator / Speaker http://www.karenhibbard.ca
About MeI am an illustrator and visual artist based in Victoria, BC. with broad experience teaching art. Currently, I am teaching at ECUAD and University of Victoria. And I have done lots of workshops for children.

As a freelance illustrator, I have worked on children’s picture books, juvenile fiction, YA fiction and non-fiction, poetry, video-poetry as well as educational books. As a contemporary artist, I have exhibited nationally and internationally.

I began a relationship with publisher Planète rebelle when I illustrated "Ti-Pinge” by author Joujou Turenne. Since then we have completed 2 other books together.

Most recently, I completed a picture book for Portage & Main Press, "NiMoshom and his Bus" by Penny M. Thomas which is based on her grandfather's life, a school bus driver. He made the school bus ride enjoyable for his charges through story-telling. Also, the book teaches a selection of Cree words and expressions.

Happily, I collaborated with many illustrators on “To This Day”, a poem by Shane Koyczan, for Annick Press. Principally, it carries an anti-bullying message for young readers.

Some other illustrating projects for children and teenagers respectively are ARC Poetry’s issue that featured poetry for children as well as activity books for the Musée d’Orsay, published by Les Éditions Mango.

I am available for art workshops and artist/illustrator talks. Please contact by email- hibbardkaren@gmail.com. Fees are in accordance with CWILL’s presentation fee guidelines.

Lee Edward Födi Author / Illustrator / Speaker http://www.leefodi.com
About MeI'm a children's author, illustrator, and educator—or, as I like to think of myself, a daydreaming expert.

When I'm not daydreaming myself, I teach kids how to do it. Sure, they might seem pretty good at it already, but in my experience, most of them haven't learned how to put it to good use . . . yet.

I'm the creator of the Kendra Kandlestar series, and have illustrated books for other authors. I was also the official illustrator for the BC Library Association 2016 summer reading club. My latest book, The Secret of Zoone, is coming out with HarperCollins Children's Books in 2019.

I enjoy mythology, history, and the mysteries of the universe. I love to visit exotic places where I can find tombs, mazes, castles, and crypts-not to mention tiny places tucked between the cracks of Here and There.

I live in Vancouver with my wife and unhelpful cat.
