Cicely Mary Barker was born in Croydon, South London in 1895. She led a quiet life, and was always happiest with a sketchbook in hand. Owing to ill health she was educated at home and largely taught herself to draw and paint. Despite her lack of formal artistic training her natural talent was commercially recognised when she was only 15 years old with the publication of a set of postcards. But it was her Flower Fairy books, the first of which was published in 1923, which brought her international acclaim as an artist. The delicate charm of her illustrations, coupled with her meticulous botanical accuracy, has captivated both children and adults alike for over 85 years, and the books have become classics of children's literature.
