Stephen Gammell grew up in Iowa. His father, an art editor for a major magazine, brought home periodicals that gave Stephen early artistic inspiration. His parents also supplied him with lots of pencils, paper, and encouragement. He is self-taught.

He started his career with commercial freelance work, but became interested in children's book illustration. His first book, A Nutty Business, was published in 1973. Since then, he has illustrated over fifty titles.

He is particularly well-known for the surreal, unsettling illustrations he provided for Alvin Schwartz’s Scary Stories to tell in the Dark series of horror short stories, still a favorite in adolescent fiction.

He is the winner of the Caldecott Medal for his drawings in Song and Dance Man by Karen Ackerman, and his art in Where the Buffaloes Begin by Olaf Baker earned him a Caldecott Honor award, the Boston Globe-Horn Book Award, and a New York Times Best Illustrated Books award. Other recent books he has illustrated include Will's Mammoth by Rafe Martin, and Dancing Teepees: Poems of American Indian Youth by Virginia Driving Hawk Sneve.
