Frank Dikotter

The book includes three series of artwork. Painting as a
window into Chinese History
is about the five generations
of women in the author's family who experienced abuse,
neglect, starvation and the death of her father and her
sister. The author had to work as a welder at the age of
fourteen. Soon she was assigned to a project in a
wasteland where she lived in a morgue that was still
surrounded by many graves and ghosts. Later she
worked as a welder in a church that had been turned into
a factory. During this dark period, all the schools were
closed, and the books were destroyed. She received her
education in hiding from her capitalist colleagues to kept
alive her “America Dream.”
Coming into Tibet is her
attempt to capture the vastness of the landscapes and the
beauty of the Tibetan people. The
Return series is about
the impact of war on women around the world. In this
second edition BiLan added the chapter “My Life in
America,” now expanding the book to 254 pages, including
54 color pages accompanied by over 500 images.

“A moving, beautifully told, magnificently illustrated story
of one woman and her family’s ordeal during decades of
persecution by the Chinese Communist Party.”
— Frank Dikotter

“Her life in the U.S. which is especially relevant today -
during a time when many immigrants are being viewed
with such negativity….”
— Vance Farrow  

“Her journey is heroic, and her telling is educational and
inspirational.  Her paintings require one to ask more
questions….”
— Sue Ann Taylor,

“Diary of the Dragon’s Daughter has inspired me to stay
true to my own dreams and to seek ever greater goals in
my own life.”
— Leslie Safford

Painting “America Divided” 48”h x 36” w, oil on canvas

BiLan Liao paints to warn the world about how an Authoritarian leader can take away your freedom. America Divided in another important
historical painting. Bilan again records the truth about what happened under the man who entered the White House in 2016. Like all
Authoritarian Leaders, he divided the nation with policies that created chaos and confusion to keep himself in power. He divided America
from our Western Allies in NATO, and formed alliances with Russia, China and North Korea. He wanted to build a wall and put innocent
people in jail including children. Under this man the national debt increased to its highest level in decades. History will record that Donald
Trump has blood on his hands from his lack of leadership to take action against the Coronavirus causing many of our people to die. He
was impeached but not removed because he corrupted too many politicians who put their party and their pocketbooks above their oath to
protect and defend America and our Constitution.  BiLan wishes the many Trump supporters well, and understands the deep
disappointment they will feel some day when his taxes are released.
