Ms. Buettner has studied at several of the most prestigious art schools in the Northeast including: Rhode Island School of Design, The New York Art Students' League, the Paier College of Art in Connecticut, and the Massachusetts College of Art in Boston. Her award winning paintings are shown in galleries throughout the United States and Canada, and are in collections worldwide.
Summering on the East Coast on Martha's Vineyard Island, Ms. Buettner's work quickly became known and collected by local residents and returning island guests. Most originals were sold while still on her easel. To keep up with demand, she created a complete product line including collector's limited edition prints, signature greeting cards with gift magnet, art magnets, post cards, photo magnet frames, calendars, notebooks, folders and photo albums. The publishing company that licensed her designs flew her to China to do an art signing at the Canton World Trade Show.
Enthusiastically sharing her knowledge, she has taught all levels of art to both beginners and adults for the past thirty years. She created and taught for over ten years a very successful after school art program for the Encinitas Union School district called "Creative Expressions". She is now available to teach private art classes in her home studio and for group painting events at your home or office.
After devoting the last twenty years to painting scenes ranging from realistic to impressionistic, Ms. Buettner is venturing out with her accomplished techniques and abilities, into the exciting and unusual world of intuitive expression coined "Neo-Biomorphism". Letting go of conscious thoughts, an exciting, creative and sensual world emerges to be experienced with the viewer. Her work has been used fort commercial projects including the Nash Bridges TV Show and the TV movie Diary of a Mad Housewife.
Available now for commissioned artworks, she can be found in her Carlsbad home art studio being inspired by the natural beauty surrounding her home.
