I discovered an article about Buzzelli and her paintings in an old issue of Nylon I had lying around. In the article, they ask her a few questions, and I liked her response to this one:
Q: "What was the first thing you ever painted?"
A: "I remember painting lots of paperdolls. As far as a real painting, I used to try to duplicate Picasso women and Odilon Redon flower vases at eight years old."
