Annette is a sculptor living and working in Northern California. She is a graduate of U.C. Berkeley, where she studied genetics and art, and received her Masters of Fine Arts at the California College of the Arts. She has been an affiliate artist in residence at the Headlands Center for the Arts and was recently honored with a residency by the Morris Graves Foundation in Northern California. She has been exhibiting her work locally and nationally for two decades.

"I am fascinated by the perversity of nature. My current work casts a critical, scientific, and humorous eye on the mutagenesis of form, from the cellular level to the limb. It examines and celebrates that moment of translation from cerebral exploration to visceral experience."
