Born and raised in Southern California, Buffy uses intriguing color choices and delicate technique, creating captivating pieces that draw you in. Pouring liquid watercolors over hand drawn sketches allows her personal style to develop as she finds inspiration in the deserts, mountains, and coastline of the Southwest. She uses intuitive composition to best highlight the mood and energy of her subject. Striving to capture the textures, grit and heart of nature, she often uses additives in her paintings such as salt, sediment, soapstone, chalks, inks, and iridescent pigments.
