Altmann has been active in visual arts for most of her life. Starting in photography she moved on to television, interactive telecommunications and video art. Along the way she has exhibited her work around the world and accumulated a variety of accolades including awards from the American Film Institute and Sony Pictures. 

Born and raised in Brazil and England, she moved to the USA to attend Hampshire College for undergraduate studies in film and video. She went on to receive a Masters of Fine Arts Degree from The San Francisco Art Institute and a Masters in Professional Studies Degree from New York University, where she received the "Interactive Media Pioneer Award." 

Along with her single channel installations Altmann works with Andreas Uthoff to create the sculptural elements of the monitors on display.  She now resides with her family in the Greater Boston area.
