Barbara Belknap Sprague is a local Carlsbad illustrator with a collection of unique animal characters and works primarily in fine detail with pen and ink. She received her Bachelors Degree in Illustration from the California State University, Fullerton. She enjoys creating designs that appeal to all ages.
Her favorite themes are dogs, birds and baby nursery. She had the opportunity to design the next version of “Character Bear” and children’s tee shirts for Mervyns Department Stores. Barbara and her husband Jeff have resided in Carlsbad for twenty years and believe it has been the perfect location to raise their four children. This inspired her new collection of Carlsbad designs in 2013, “Cbad Designs”.
