Sandy Moss, creator of Blackbird Trace, is a self taught mixed media artist. With a background in teaching and social media marketing, Sandy has a passion to share her story of overcoming emotional trauma and pain through Expressive Arts. She is constantly inspired by cutting edge brain research and business principles which then spill onto canvas through paper, asemic writing and paint.
Guided by her aunt, professional artist Louise Brown, Sandy began painting with oils at the age of 5. Her creative endeavors in the arts continued as she moved on to explore music with banjo and piano lessons.
The pull of creativity followed her as she matured into adulthood teaching in public as well as private christian schools, homeschooling two children, serving as Children’s Ministry Administrator for Grace Church, catering for the Celebrate Recovery Ministry at Journey Church as well as mentoring the College Age Ministry at Journey.
Sandy’s interest in business peaked with the dawn of the internet. Social media marketing allowed her to marry her two passions- enhancing lives through supportive healing art clinics and continually pursuing new art techniques in order to discover the principles that enhance, explain and transform businesses, spiritual journeys, and emotional healing.
Business has always had space in Sandy’s life. Previous life events have lead her to own a childcare service, professional cleaning service, Cedarberry Creative Art Center, Heart Sparks Subscription Club and Ravens Palette Pop Up Holiday Painting Venue. Commissioned artwork, gallery exhibits, lecturer for various universities, elementary guest art teaching along with speaking engagements have given her a chance to share her passion of art and healing with a diverse age group.
