Her paintings have shown in group and solo exhibitions nationally and are in collections throughout the United States.
She was a featured workshop instructor for Art Methods and Material Show in Pasadena, California, sponsored by American Artist magazine, and was showcased in the March, 2005 issue of The Artist’s Magazine for the article, “Making the Leap.” Louis Vuitton Paris selected her work to participate in a launch of their fine jewelry line, which appeared in Vogue Paris.
Buckles received her MFA from the University of Texas at San
Antonio. She is an adjunct instructor at San Antonio College and teaches painting workshops and oil painting classes.
