Iris Häussler practices sketching and life-drawing in a way a pianist does finger-exercises, with over 180 sketchbooks accumulated in her studio. Häussler is known internationally for the unsettling, immersive narrative installations that she creates for her fictitious characters. Häussler studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich and has received awards and grants including the Karl-Hofer Prize (Berlin), the Kunstfonds Fellowship (Bonn) and funding from the Toronto Arts Council, the Ontario Arts Council and the Canada Council for the Arts. She has lived and worked in Toronto since 2001.
