STOP PRESS ! Grahame is the winner of the Greenaway Medal 2011

Grahame Baker Smith studied at Berkshire College of Art and Design. Deciding to pursue a career as a freelance illustrator meant that he had to teach himself the craft of illustration, working in a tiny Oxford bedsit and often buying his paints instead of the paraffin for his heater.

Grahame has now illustrated a number of adult titles (including an H.G. Wells trilogy), does regular illustration work for magazines and creates stunning children’s book illustrations. Constantly experimenting with different styles of illustration, Grahame likes to challenge conventional boundaries with his artwork.
Grahame illustrated the magical picture book Leon and the Place Between, written by Angela McAllister. Farther, which uses photographic collage and illustration, is the first book that Grahame has written and illustrated. It won the Greenaway Medal in 2011. Constantly experimenting with different styles of illustration, Grahame likes to challenge the conventional boundaries with his artwork. Grahame is also busy writing and illustrating a groundbreaking new project – an epic adventure called Tales from Terramaunia.

Grahame currently lives in Bath, with his wife Linda.
