Jeannie Baker

Jeannie Baker is the author-artist of a number of distinguished picture books. Among them are Where the Forest Meets the Sea, a Boston Globe-Horn Honour Book and the recipient of an IBBY Honour Award and a Friends of the Earth award in Great Britain. Window was shortlisted for the Kate Greenaway Medal in Great Britain and both Window and Mirror won the Children’s Book Council of Australia Picture Book of the Year Award. She was the IBBY Australian nominee for the 2018 Hans Christian Andersen Award for Illustration. Jeannie is also the director, artist and author of two award-winning animated films.

Her collage art is famous for capturing natural textures – children often try to pick images off the page – and her works have been exhibited internationally.
