Lill Tschudi was born in Switzerland but studied for a short period in London under Claude Flight, an enthusiastic promoter of linocut printing. Tschudi was one of his best pupils. Her work was better appreciated in Britain than in Switzerland and was included in several exhibitions. In 1933 Ice Hockey was singled out for praise by The Times newspaper art critic and others when shown at the Ward Gallery in London. Impressions were purchased by the V&A and the British Museum within a few weeks of the show, and when the exhibition travelled through the UK and Canada (1933-1936), requests were received for more impressions.
