Meet the Vendor: Jill Bliss
Who are you and what do you do?
I’m a nature nerd and artist, focusing on Salish Sea & Pacific Northwest ecosystems, plants and animals.
What’s the latest thing you’ve been working on?
After becoming a certified Salish Sea naturalist this past spring, I spent this past summer on the San Juan island getting to know not only the orcas, but even more intriguing to me, the Dorcas (Orca dorks) that love them. I’m currently working on a line of “Dorca” tees and prints before spending the rest of this winter delving into more marine Anima Habitat depictions.
Any new exciting news you’d like to share with our readers?
I’m planning to have more new art prints, in several sizes, at the show this year.
How far will you be traveling to come to UCU?
I’ll be taking the mainland-bound ferry from San Juan Island.
Is this a full-time business for you?
No, I also teach & volunteer art & nature and have other assorted odd-jobs.
