Bliss | @blissone

Bliss was born and raised in Echo Park until her family was displaced in 2011 and now resides in East Los Angeles. As a youth she put endless hours of practice under her belt. She applied herself to earn resources in high school and further solidified her skills with the help of the Art Department at Pasadena City College. She has a repertoire of designing on the go and utilizes whatever tools are available to her. With an intuitive ability to create art that’s influenced with resistance to injustice, power to the people and strong sense of familia, this fashionista tends to woe audiences with her creations. She is also a community organizer that uses art to uplift the voices of the unheard. She’s a painter, muralist, photographer, graphic designer; a maker of all sorts. She thrives in opportunities to reuse, recycle and repurpose materials for her projects; all the while being mindful and kind to Pachamama. She’s part of a house co-op in East la where she skillshares and hosts workshops for the community free of charge.
