The Austrian-born artist began her studies at the Art Students League of New York and the New York Academy of Art, before going on to receive an MFA in set design from Yale University. She has received several grants and scholarships from the Austrian Federal Ministry for Education, Science and Culture and the Julius Raab Foundation.

From 1997–2003 she designed and directed for opera, theatre and film in the US and in Europe, including productions at the Soho Rep NYC, the Salzburg Festival, De Nederlandse Opera Amsterdam and the Palais Garnier Opéra de Paris. Her short films and documentaries have been shown at festivals in the US and Europe.
