Annette is fascinated by how things begin, how they evolve, and ultimately, how they come to an end, thereby allowing for new cycles of growth to take their place. This interest extends to people, plants, animals, urban spaces, political movements and even entire countries. Through her work, Annette wishes to capture the essence of identity, movement and evolution. She aims to share the inherent beauty and terror in seemingly mundane stories, the kind that might be overlooked by the average passerby. Every discovery leads to another question, another riddle that challenges the audience to evaluate who we are and how we look at our surroundings.
Annette was born in Florida to a German father and Peruvian mother. She has never had one singular identity, and in most ways, she has never existed in one place at one time. Constantly moving. Constantly seeking new knowledge. Constantly wandering. Her soul seeks eternal refuge in the stories that are constantly emerging around her.
