About the Artist

Buscher moved to Florida in 1998, after a lifetime of vacation visits. She entered Eckerd College in St Petersburg, FL in 2006, and graduated with honors in 2010. Her work has been displayed in art shows, offices, and private homes across America. 


Artist's Statement

Everyone sees the world in different ways. I see the world in different ways on different days. Sometimes due to my mood, sometimes it is the change in lighting that affects the color. Often it is just the simplicity that I find appealing. But whatever it reason, I have the need to capture it.
