Ms. Buchman's work explores themes including mysticism and stories turned into contemporary Jewish "midrash",  animals as humourous muses and as witness, companion and guide, everyday objects as expressionist anthropomorphized beings, portraits that are pyschologically poignant and narrative, and landscapes of utopian and exotic worlds. Her wide painterly vocabulary of bold color, collage materials and glazes layer the work with richness and depth. Ms. Buchman uses oil, acrylic, gouache, inks, fabric, lace, glazes, flowers, hand made papers, polyurethane, photographs, wallpaper, sequins, nail polish, glitter, feathers,..
