JEANNIE BAKER

About Jeannie Baker

Jeannie Baker has been making collages since 1972. Most of her collages are used in books but also made into artworks. Jeannie lived with her partner Daivd Blackwell until he died in 2012. Jeannie’s collages are recognised  by lots of people because of her unique style. Jeannie Baker’s most known book is “Where the forest meets the sea”. Not only does she write her books with words she also writes them without words but she makes the pictures/collages very detailed so it is like there is words.

 

Do I like or dislike her?

I like Jeannie Baker because she uses her own style of  collages and artwork. I also like her becayse she always make her books have a strong and powerful moral that makes you realise what can happen or what you can do.

 

 

Haiku Poems

BEACH

Baroling Waves

Sandy feet in wet thongs

Shells crunching up

 

PONY CLUB

Sound of horse shoes

Sweat dripping from tough riding

Smiles everywhere

 

ZOO

Lions roaring hard

Children laughing and playing

Monkeys climbing high

 

HOW TO WRITE A HAIKU POEM:

Start of with choosing a topic, lets just say your topic was shopping.

Then try writing a few words that relate to shopping and equal

5 syllables. For example: Shoes and clothes. then under neath that you write

another few words that relate to shopping aswell, but equal 7 syllables.

For example: myer, target, kmart and seed.
