Born in Austria, Wild fled to Argentina during WWII with her parents. As a young girl she took painting classes in Vienna such as in Buenos Aires and later worked in textile design before she married the textile industrialist August Wild. In 1962 the family escaped the regime of Juan Peron and found a new home in Basel, Switzerland. Wild opened an antique shop at St. Johannstor which became the outlet for her creativity at the time and also supported her and her family financially. In 2007 Wild joined her daughter Vivian Suter in the remote Guatemalan village of Panajachel. Though she worked in various media throughout her lifetime, Wild’s early work in textiles was a precursor to the collage she settled into later in life and adds a layer of explanation to the almost-quilted cohesion of these works.
