Ms. Buchman's work explores a wide variety of themes including contemporary Jewish "midrash",  everyday objects such as cars becoming expressionist anthropomorphized beings, portraits that are pyschologically poignant, narrative landscapes of utopian and exotic worlds, childlike horses, cats, and creatures that are delightful at any age. 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,..
