Photographer Turns Island Mushrooms Into Colorful Arrangements

Jill Bliss, an artist living on a small island in the Salish Sea in the Pacific Northwest, is fascinated by the incredible variety of mushrooms that appear in the fall. She uses these as inspiration for her artwork, capturing images of the colorful fungi in attractive arrangements.

Colossal writes that for her project, titled Nature Medleys, she produces photos, illustrations, and mixed media artworks of her finds.

“I’ve plunked down my life savings for a modest half acre of cleared land on a small island of 30 full-time households to live out the rest of my days in tune with the natural world,” writes Bliss.

“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,” the artist says. “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.”
