Terri Rose Baynton, aufgewachsen in Neuseeland, arbeitet heute als Autorin und Illustratorin, nachdem sie für verschiedene Kindersendungen als Drehbuchautorin tätig war. 2012 erschien ihr erstes Bilderbuch, das für den Australian Book Design Award und den New Zealand Post Book Award nominiert wurde.
Terri Rose grew up on a small farm in coastal New Zealand surrounded by animals of every kind and colour. With beaches, rivers and rolling hills to explore, Terri’s love for the outdoors and the animals that inhabited them was sealed. Upon leaving school she pursued a career as a script writer, becoming the writer for shows such a ‘Jane and the Dragon’ and ‘The Wotwots’. However the medium of picture books was always calling and in 2012 Terri published her first title Mr Bear Branches and the Cloud Conundrum which went on to be nominated for an Australian Book Design Award and a New Zealand Book Award. She now has four books under her belt and is becoming known for her subtly playful and expressive creatures, endeavouring with every pencil stroke to pay homage to those animal companions that shaped her childhood.
