Jeannie Baker is a multi-award winning author/illustrator and a short film maker. She was born in Croydon, England, Nov 2 in 1950; she is now 62 years old and the eldest of six children. When she was young she attended college at Brighton Polytechnic and immigrated to Australia in 1975. She is now based in Sydney and likes to focus on communicating with people in different meanings through her books.
I like Jeannie Baker because she is an inspiring author/illustrator, she is a great children’s author and is really passionate about her books. I love how she uses collages to bring her books to life and even though most of them have no words, people say that pictures can tell a thousand words.
