Buffy Michelle Kaufman
I was born and raised in Southern California, and am currently living in the foothills between the San Bernardino and San Jacinto Mountains. I'm inspired by color and artistic wanders in the desert, mountains, and coastline. I 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. 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.
