Little Miss Sunbeam

The image of Miss Sunbeam® was created by a well known children’s book illustrator named Ellen Segner during the early 1940’s. Miss Sunbeam® was drawn from life by Ellen Segner in Washington Square Park in New York City and was based upon her observation over several days of a blonde-haired, blue-eyed little girl playing in the park.


From these drawings, she developed the original

oil painting of Miss Sunbeam®, which hangs today

in the offices of Quality Bakers of America. Ellen Segner produced over 30 original oil paintings of

Miss Sunbeam® that were used for print marketing and outdoor advertising in the 40’s, 50’s and 60’s across the USA. Little Miss Sunbeam®, an enduring childhood image for generations and one of our country’s best-loved brands.
