About the Author

YVONNE PALKA is an award-winning sumi-e artist. A retired college professor, grandmother, artist, and naturalist, she loves introducing children and adults to the wonders of the natural world and the beauty of their own creativity. She loves sumi-e (Asian brush painting) for the simple elegance with which it captures the spirit of nature. Inspired by this simplicity, she teaches children and adults the essence of sumi-e painting in schools and other community settings. The same magic of the heart that gives rise to to her sumi-e paintings gives rise to her dragon stories. Yvonne lives in Minneapolis, Minnesota, where she paints, writes, gardens, and teaches.


Like Ed Emberley, the artist offers clear, step-by-step instructions . . . Charming, practical, and a good guide to using a brush to create simple illustrations. --Kirkus Reviews The details make this Asian brush painting technique so appealing that both children and adults will be tempted to work at it together, transforming this activity into a true family experience.--Seattle Book Review
I hope some will think of this Sumi-e picture book as a gift to set someone on a path of discovery about Asian art and the history of Asian cultures.--International Examiner
