~buffy | PROJECTS


 My actual name is Buffy, though I go by the artist name ~buffy. 


The tilde (~) is a remnant from my technology/web development days. Essentially, it means what you're looking at is virtually me... artistic representations of life moments absorbed from experiences or personal observations - filtered through my creative lens - that flowed, reimagined into my art.  


Though my background is rooted in web and graphic design, 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 was a life altering experience that changed me as a person and transformed my creative thinking.

All that said - when it comes to creating 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.
