I’m Bliss Gervais and Santa Cruz is the town I grew up in, so I am delighted to be in this magazine! My husband, Peace, was also born in Santa Cruz.Our parents gave us our unusual names and we happened to meet eachother and instantly felt a strong connection. Now we are raising our wonderful son here. His name is Chakra and he is almost 7 years old.
I have been creating art for as long as I can remember. My family is very creative in many ways and I tried a wide variety of art forms at an early age. Pen and paper has always been my favorite medium, although there are many others that I enjoy. When I make my art, I do not usually have a plan and I let the art emerge on the page and become whatever it is. Sometimes I do have an idea in mind and I have had friends comission me to design things for them.
I have had a few casual art shows and festival booths and I really enjoy showing my work. I have sold several peices. Currently, I am focusing my energy on expanding the scope of my creative endeavors and getting more exposure. I am a prolific artist and now it is time to do something with the portfolio I have accumulated.
