Samantha Dion Baker is originally from Philadelphia, where she grew up in a family of artists. She graduated from The Cooper Union in New York City and spent over twenty years working as a graphic designer. Now a full-time illustrator and artist, her favorite thing to do is wander the city streets and travel with her family, drawing all of the things she does, eats, and sees, in the pages of her sketch journal. She is the author of Draw Your Day and Draw Your Day Sketchbook, and is currently working on two new books to be published in 2021. Samantha lives and works in Brooklyn with her husband and two sons.
