artist profile - Jill Bliss
Jill Bliss, a native of Northern California recently transplanted to Portland, Oregon, draws obsessively from the natural world that surrounds her. Her meticulous drawn lines and attention to details are informed by a farmlife childhood, while her sparse-yet-dense sense of color and design come from her academic and professional backgrounds in fashion design, illustration and design theory at Parsons School of Design in New York and CCA in San Francisco.
Drawing, sewing, and meticulous hand-craftsmanship are all put to use while exploring the small details within natural and handmade objects.
