Each piece at J Bliss Studios is handcrafted by husband and wife team Jared and Joanna Bliss in their Woodstock studio and storefront.
Living in the Catskill Mountains they are continually inspired by the natural world. Tempering inspiration with their combined styles, using skills in metalsmithing and illustration, they bring something new to the world and hope to share a little piece of bliss with you.
Joanna and Jared, born and raised in the Hudson Valley, have been immersed in the world of art and nature through their families and community their entire lives.
Her mother an art teacher, Joanna grew up both making and learning about art. At fifteen she took her first jewelry course at Kingston High School and was immediately hooked, beginning an internship with a local jeweler just a year later. Joanna then went on to SUNY New Paltz where she received her BFA with a concentration in metals and a minor in business administration.
Jared grew up with his father’s design studio right at home, giving him early access to the world of art. From his earliest school days Jared’s notebooks have always had more drawings and doodles than words. Inspired by his fascination of nature and science fiction, Jared draws from both reality and the imagination. Creating illustrations of creatures and landscapes that are familiar yet other worldly, each drawing has its own story to tell.
