In addition to her work as an artist, Buchanan was trained as a wildlife biologist and brings the experience and insights of scientific observation to her artistic practice.

Her process creates collages of various materials and media on flat printing plates, one for each color or suite of colors in the print. The collages are then inked and printed using an etching press to create an image that is rich in subtle colors and textured layers.

Buchanan says of her work, “I am constantly inspired by the area where I live. The coast of Maine always reinvents itself with ever-changing ocean and sky, and seasons which each have grace and character all their own.”
