Lika Nüssli was born in Gossau in 1973. She completed a preparatory course in Romanshorn and then, after an apprenticeship in textile design in Herisau, studied illustration at the Hochschule Luzern – Design & Kunst. Since 2003 she has worked as an freelance artist in St. Gall. Over the course of the last several years she has discovered performative drawing and developed it in various forms. Her large-scale drawings emerge from specific situations and grow into walkthrough installations.
