• Sarah Baker is the Director of Illustration and Artist Programs at the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators. She manages and develops the illustrator grants, awards and scholarships, advises and mentors SCBWI illustrator members, and serves as the designer and art director for the Bulletin and all other SCBWI publications.

  • I love to illustrate with quill and ink, pencil, gouache, and photoshop. I find inspiration in my daughters, childhood memories, the nature all around Los Angeles, and all the illustrators and friends I meet through SCBWI.
