Christine Barker started CP Coastal out of a love for coastal living. In the mid 90's after college, without knowing a soul, she moved from Indiana to Los Angeles to take a job working in corporate finance. Not until years later did she realize she was destined to live in Southern California and become submerged in the beach lifestyle.
Christine was voted 'most artistic' in high school, dabbling in sketching and painting. What she didn't know was that that hobby would follow her to LA. After taking a course in Art Licensing at Otis College of Art and Design, something clicked and she decided to blend her interests in the beach and creating art.
Christine's designs originate from two primary sources - the first is from the amazing beauty found at the beach; and the other is from legendary music about the beach (The Beach Boys, Kenny Chesney and Jimmy Buffett are huge inspirations). CP Coastal's brand is described as "Coastal art with an adventurous spirit and laid back attitude."
CP Coastal works with clients to produce designs for many different products including apparel, lifestyle accessories, tech, home decor, and more.
"Life is better lived in a beach state of mind." - Christine Barker
