Buckman competed at the World Junior Championships in 2004, where her 4 × 400 m team finished fifth in the heats. She competed at the 2006 event, finishing 4th in the 800 metre semi-final and eleventh in the 1500 metre final.

"Familial Filth," part of Buckman's NOMI exhibit, showcases her love for embroidery and incorporating vintage fabrics such as household linens, and in previous works, lingerie and wedding dresses.

Buckman is known for exploring the imbalance of power and gender violence, as well as installations that honor and praise the feminine. Her multi-media consist of textiles, embroidery, and other items collected from the unlikeliest places to inspire feminist art, from her late mother’s cupboard to a gritty boxing gymource:

“At the time things were building up for the general elections so it felt like there was this war on women and it was also a time I was separating from my marriage,” says Buckman, whose marriage with actor David Schwimmer ended in divorce in 2017. “I needed a space and practice to help me channel internally. So I went deep into boxing to be trained how to hold our own space and take space from someone else.” (Source: www.forbes.com)“The limiting and confining conditions of 2020 triggered memories for me of the times I’ve been held back, literally or symbolically, by patriarchal forces." --Zoe Buckman
