I was born in Valparaiso, Chile to an Austrian father and a Chilean mother. When I was just a year old we moved to Bergisch Gladbach, Germany. I was introduced to the art of collage in middle school.
In 1986 we moved to Quito, Ecuador where I finished high school. I did some soul searching and lived in Chile, Santiago for a year and a half and attended Art school( Universidad Catolica de Chile) briefly.
Since 1997 I live in Indianapolis where I finally have settled down. I live and work North of the Indiana State Fair at the Monon Keystone neighborhood with my husband and teenage daughter.
I upcycle discarded paper, such as magazine paper or junk mail to create collages.
