Born in Germany in 1970, I emigrated with my mother to the United States at age seven. During my childhood I frequently visited the art museums of Chicago, absorbing the work of artists who had the intention and power to change perspectives and social conditioning.

Since then, my work has consistently addressed social issues. I have shown my paintings, drawings, artist’s books, and installations at the Anti War Museum in Berlin, Germany; TAPP Gallery in Sydney, Australia; MECENAS Gallery in Juarez; Mexico, and Woman Made Gallery in Chicago, among others. Past projects include The Womb is a Bunker: Exploration of Cellular Memory, The Politics of Purification, and Collateral Damage. These works dealt with the ways in which war affects civilians, especially women and children. My current work, a series of graphic novellas, is titled The F Word Project: Five Feminist Fables for the Twenty-first Century. This project incorporates engaging stories, social messages, strong female superheroines, humor, and contemporary artworks. I began this project in 2006, in response to the femicides in Juárez, Mexico.
