Jeannie Baker was born in England and moved to Australia. She studied art and design in England. Her illustrations have appeared in various publications including Nova, The London Times, and The Sunday Times. She is the author of Home in the Sky, an ALA Notable Book, and of several picture books published in England, including One Hungry Spider and Millicent. She won a 2017 Indie Book Award in the Children's category for her book, Circle. Since 1972, Ms. Baker has worked on "collage constructions," many of which are designed to illustrate picture books but stand individually as works of art. They have been displayed in galleries in Australia and England as well as by Forum Gallery in New York City. (Bowker Author Biography)
