Jeanie Mossa is a tree hugging artist, licensed acupuncturist and medicine woman. A survivor of 12 years of parochial schools, cruel nuns with rulers, uber-strict Italian Catholic parents, she went through some very scary stuff that we are just not going to mention in a book!
She has a Master of Traditional Oriental Medicine degree from Pacific College of Oriental Medicine. As an artist she works in mixed media and has created healing spirit dolls, jewelry and clothing in addition to the art in this book. Jeanie has written and illustrated three other books on holistic healing for pets and people.
She has previously worked as a steel worker, a glass artist and was a waitress at the Last Supper. She lives in Alexandria, Virginia with her husband and a menagerie of animals, dragons, faeries and gnomes.
