About the Author
Ilan Salzberg is a mischievous parent of three. Reading and telling stories to his children inspired this first foray into fiction writing. He has gotten his hands dirty founding Red Wagon Organic Farm, which continues to grow delicious food for the boys and girls of Boulder County. He also founded Ekar Farm, an urban non-profit farm feeding less fortunate boys and girls in Denver. As a commercial real estate developer and manager, he is currently building spaces for aspiring grocers, toy merchants, and craftspeople in Denver and Kansas City.
Carmiella Salzberg is an explorer. While she was gardening for printmaker, Emily Harvey, in York, England, her brother Ilan reached out with the When the Little Engine Couldn't concept. The idea of using the found material printmaking methods she was then learning in York excited her. She honed these methods at the studio of the Barbará family in Barcelona, Spain. Her opportunities to work in the printmaking craft have included time in Denver with Master Printmaker Mark Lunning, and at Red Delicious Press. She is earning a Master's Degree in Expressive Arts Therapy from the European Graduate School in Saas Fee, Switzerland. She will continue to share the knowledge of her craft with girls and boys with bobbed hair, curly hair, and most of all, bright eyes.
Katie Olson is a storyteller. Katie studied Printmaking at Washington University in St. Louis with Carmiella. Katie has always made natureinspired artwork and films ranging from giant screen-printed installations of schools of fish to co-directing an animated short film about dancing Mexican bats. She was a story artist and animator on a short film about adventures in a forest with sheep made of clouds. Katie also studied at The Glasgow School of Art with Carmiella. While together in Scotland, they collaborated on a mural at the home of a sheep farmer on the Isle of Skye. Katie currently works for Bardel in Vancouver, Canada, as an animator for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Katie created the characters and compositions for this book. Thanks to Katie, we all think we can!
