Illustrator Gallery: The Work of Dawn Baker

In this month's illustrator gallery, we're pleased to feature the work of Newfoundland artist Dawn Baker, whose gorgeous images put the spotlight on her home province.  

Dawn Baker has been a full-time visual artist and children’s writer since 1992. She grew up in Glenwood, Newfoundland, and has lived in Gander since she was a teenager. Dawn has a bachelor of education (post-secondary) and a certificate in library studies, both from Memorial University, and has served on the board of directors of The Rooms Corporation of Newfoundland and Labrador since 2006. Her work has been shortlisted twice for the Writers Alliance of Newfoundland and Labrador Heritage and History Book Awards, and she was invited to participate in TD Children's Week in 2014.
