Many of us know that God works in mysterious ways, putting up obstacles one day, clearing hurdles and opening doors the next. Camilla Moss can attest to the veracity of that statement firsthand. When her youngest child was born with Down Syndrome, the rhythm and pace of life in the Moss household shifted. There was a pause that gave space to tapping into her creative side. She discovered solace and focus in painting—and even more joy in sharing her work with a wider audience. The colors she is drawn to—pinks, blues, sunny yellows, and corals—are naturally light and uplifting. These hues find their way onto scripture and affirmation cards, bite-sized notes that are perfect for tucking into backpacks, lunchboxes, briefcases, or a well-loved family Bible. Recently, her artwork has found a home in wallpapers and textiles.
“Being a maker in Birmingham means there are so many outlets to express yourself. I am especially proud of the relationship I have with United Ability, helping this organization raise funds while introducing my work to a larger audience.”– Camilla Moss
