Eleanor Buffam – paintings



I am primarily a painter, interested in exploring ideas of community, interdependence, and interconnectivity, especially regarding humanity’s place with one another and with our environment- with our cities, with the Earth, and in the cosmos. I see art as an important way of developing empathy and tolerance by exploring diverse viewpoints and creatively exploring possibilities.

I was born in Falkirk and grew up in Philadelphia. I have a BFA in Painting from Tyler School of Art, Temple University, having studied in Philadelphia and Rome from 1996-2002. I studied at West Dean College in West Sussex, UK, from 2010-2012, graduating with an MFA in Painting and Drawing. I have exhibited internationally, and my work is held in private collections in the US, UK and Europe. I currently live and work in Edinburgh.

I am a proud member of Artcan
