Jill Bliss is an artist who lives on a small island in the Salish Sea in the Pacific Northwest. Using a wide assortment of the beautifully vibrant mushrooms she finds, Bliss turns them into stunning arrangements. And photographs them for a project she calls Nature Medleys.
“I’ve plunked down my life savings for a modest half acre of cleared land on a small island to live. I satisfy my nomadic nature by holing up in various off-grid cabins on small islands. Preferably with wild animals and semi-feral people for neighbors, mentors and muses. These are the months for hibernation, quiet reflection, close observations of discreet moments in nature, art making, sleeping, reading, cooking, chopping wood, stoking wood stove fires, hiking & kayaking in the rain.” –Bliss
