Silvija is a regular participant in the WHA haiga contests where, because of the consistently high quality of her work, Kuniharu Shimizu has awarded her the title of Master Haiga Artist. Her work has been included in the WHA Anthology and in the Anthology Cascina Macondo in Italy (2006). She has published two books, Touched by the Dream (2004) and A Released Drop (2007). Her work may be seen on her personal sites, silvijabutkovic.blogspot.com and webograd.tportal.hr/silvija_butkovic.
Readers will remember Silvija's first appearance in Haigaonline in our last issue. At the time, she mentioned to me that she works at the a Lipizzaner stud farm and included some of her photos of the horses. I was completely taken by them and asked her for a haiga. We're so pleased now to offer it to you, plus more of her photos of these splendid creatures.
