Maker Spotlight: Jill Bliss

Jill Bliss is an artist and illustrator living and painting in the Pacific Northwest. She recently left her longtime home in Portland, OR, and moved to a more remote location, to create art and live in a more natural setting. Her work lends itself perfectly to capturing the tiny natural details that could be lost in an urban environment.

Sometimes it’s hard to believe Jill lives on the same planet as the rest of us. Then again, take a look at a typical daily view in Jill’s neck of the woods:

Luckily for us, Jill’s more far flung experience has led to one of her most prolific periods as an artist. She’ll have lots of new artworks to share, as well as some collaborative projects, that have led to a new journal filled with her drawings.

Viewing Jill’s Instagram feed provides some insight into her beautiful world – she is inspired by even the tiniest forms of beauty around her. Her keen eye picks up on the most interesting textures and color combinations to create lush microclimates, many of which evolve into paintings.
