~buffy | PROJECTS
My name is Buffy (yes, my real name), ~buffy is my artist name. The tilde (~) is a remnant from my web development days. Essentially, it means what your looking at is virtually me...
My work is a mix of imagery and mediums. Many of the artistic representations are life moments absorbed from experiences or personal observations - filtered through my creative lens - that flowed, reimagined into my art.
My background is rooted in photography, web, and graphic design but I'm a relative newcomer to the art world. By the traditional AFTA Network definition I am considered an emerging artist or an arts professional with less than 10 years of experience, coming into the field as a subsequent career.
I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication Arts concentrating in Visual Communications with minors in Information Technology Systems and Art Studio.
During my junior year, I studied abroad at Griffith University Queensland College of Art South Bank in Brisbane, QLD, Australia. That life altering experience changed me as a person and transformed my creative thinking.
When it comes to traditional or studio art - much of my understanding is self-taught or comes from many workshops taken from 2017 (the year I decided art would become more than a hobby) to present day.
