About the artist:
He lives in Conneticut, is a painter of portraits, landscapes and still lifes. Our Home Is The Sea was his first children's book. Luzak went to Hong Kong for this book so that he could get a firsthand impression of the city's "colors, noises, and crowds, and a clearer understanding of the culture." It seems he was also a teacher at Paier College of Art in Hamden, Connecticut.
