Cara Deming Butler is an illustrator and writer currently based in Houston. She graduated Phi Beta Kappa with BAs in English and Visual Art from the University of Texas at Austin and created Saint Delphine shortly after as a way to file all her characters and their stories into one cohesive place. She likes for every piece she creates to have a narrative purpose and Saint Delphine has become that purpose. 


Important inspirational sources are topiaries, Palladian villas, William Larkin carpets, and outer space. By combining feminine, design-oriented elements with retro sci-fi themes, she shares a visually spectacular Versailles-living, hair-and-makeup-loving experience. Think astronauts in glitter spacesuits and heads of state planning interplanetary dinner parties over jasmine tea.
