Eleanor Buffam
  • Work
  • Biography
Eleanor explores identity and connection in her artworks. She believes that art has the potential to develop empathy and tolerance by exploring diverse viewpoints and creatively exploring possibilities. Eleanor suffers from a debilitating chronic illness (ME/CFS), which limits what she can do, and this has forced her to slow down and explore less intensive ways of creating.

She has exhibited with the Scottish Portrait Awards, at the Scottish National Gallery, and in the ING Discerning Eye, amongst other exhibitions in the UK and internationally. Her work is held in private collections in the US, UK, and Europe. She lives in Leith.
