Buffy Michelle Kaufman 

About Me: 

I was born and raised in Southern California. Currently living in the foothills of Calimesa between the San Bernardino and San Jacinto Mountains. Inspired by color and artistic wanders in the desert, mountains, and coastline. Drawn to old store fronts and candid scenes of people which I hope to integrate into my practice. Grew up surrounded by artisans. Grandpa Sam a woodworker, Dad Mike a bow maker, and Uncle Pat a flint knapper, each worked skillfully by hand with nature. I strive to capture that grit in watercolor. My current artistic pursuit is a satisfying painting method using watercolor pouring alongside direct painting. Being self-taught I understand the importance of having a pathway to study art. I have enjoyed recycling my studies into instruction. Teaching background includes 8 years serving as an art mentor to at-risk youth and teaching children's art classes. In 2019 taking a leap of faith I transitioned to teaching

adult watercolor classes offering both in person and online workshops. In this season

of life, I’ve found a community of artists and art enthusiasts that bless me in friendship, encouragement, and am forever grateful to each who have been a part of this journey.
