Alma Magdalena Hirsig Bliss was born in Bern, Switzerland on June 24, 1875.  Alma Hirsig studied painting under G. DeBillemot-Chardon, Rene Prinet, and Gustave Courtois in Paris before immigrating to the U.S. about 1900. 

After settling in New York City with her well-to-do parents, she further studied at the Art Students League and with Robert Reid, Willard Metcalf, and Douglas Volk.  By 1920 she was the wife of Louis E. Bliss; by 1923 she was a widow.
