"Della's work reflects the daughter of the Eternal and enchants us back into balance, helping us
to align the stories we tell ourselves with the story intended for us to bring forth to the world."

Award-winning and best-selling author Della Burford’s Art has been inspired by dreams, different
cultures, shamanism, and imagination. She has conducted Art, Storytelling and Creative writing workshops for children and adults for
thirty years. She is a former teacher of Design at Humber College. Her workshops have been in Mexico, Guatemala,
England, Holland, Korea, Bali and North America.
She painted large canvases as sets for the productions of her stories ‘Dodoland’ and ‘Magical Earth Secrets’ in New York City
which she co-directed and which were performed as plays in such venues as the Museo del Barrio, Museum of Natural History,
Brooklyn Academy of Music, St. Peter’s Church at the Citicorp, 3rd St Music School in New York and the Discovery Theater at
the Smithsonian Institute.
Her stories, which often have initially been sparked by trauma, explore Imagination, Chakras, love of the Environment,
Self- Healing, Transformation, Vision and Universal Love. Her stories/art have been shared in a Toronto Prison, Sloan
Kettering and Metropolitan Hospital, an alternative Cancer Center in Vancouver, and many International Festivals and
workshops. Dodoland was performed for every child in East Harlem and the book gifted to 6,000 underprivileged children
in California. Her most recent books are "Dream Wheels" and "Dream Keys to the Castle". Dream Wheels included the art of 16 Visionary artists. Her offerings are for the World, Humanity and Spirit. Della's websites are at www.dellaburford.com
