Buffy Michelle Kaufman
Born and raised in Southern California, Buffy Kaufman uses intriguing color choices
and delicate technique, creating captivating pieces that draw you in.
She finds inspiration in the colors and textures of nature in the desert, mountains, and coastline. She 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.
She strives to capture that grit in her watercolors.
Being self-taught, she understands the importance of having a pathway to study art.
Buffy enjoys recycling her studies into instruction. Her teaching background includes 8 years serving as an art mentor to at-risk youth and teaching children’s art classes. In 2019, she transitioned to teaching adult watercolor classes, offering both in person and online workshops. In this season of life, she has found the blessings of community through art, and is forever grateful to each who have been a part of her journey. She is a Signature Member of the Louisiana Watercolor Society, a Brand Ambassador for Daniel Smith, and an Art Instructor at The Fallbrook School of the Arts and The Green Art House.
