About

Art Deco in a Modern World.

Founded in Portland, Oregon on a rainy day.


Octavine was my great-aunt. Born in New York City at the dawn of the Jazz Age, she embodied Depression-era sensibility and possessed a penchant for the unique. For my eleventh birthday she gave me a calligraphy set. This gift allowed my artistic sensibility to blossom and reveal what is now my passion; the timeless art of hand-wrought font intermingled with organic forms. Thus began Octavine Illustration.

Cara Buchalter was born and raised in Albuquerque, New Mexico. She currently resides in Marin County, California.
