Buffy Michelle Kaufman

Born and raised in Southern California, I grew up surrounded by artisans; Grandpa Samuel a woodworker, my Dad Michael a bow maker, and Uncle Patrick a flint knapper. Each working by hand with nature. I strive to capture that grit in my watercolors. You’ll find me chasing inspiration, camera in hand, then back to the studio, brush and paint to paper. By faith I follow this sunlit path, being sure to give thanks along the way.

Watercolor Pouring


Starting with 100 percent cotton, slightly textured paper, a light sketch or tracing start to shape the design. Saving the white of the paper I begin multiple pours and glazes, the colors blending into the paper's fibers. There are incredible light effects as the paint dries. Additives such as salt, sediment, ink, and pastels are sometimes added. Direct painting to soften and the final touch of adding my signature to finish. 


"Make it your goal to live a quiet life, minding your own business and working with your hands...
