Self-taught Abstract Artist

Sometimes I feel that painting is the most important thing I could ever do in my life, even above social-change work. I am a self-taught artist who and have committed herself to expressing truth as it came to me. In my paintings, I hold nothing back. It’s not an emotional or spiritual experience; it’s a fully-in-the-body experience where being a human on this planet is the point.

I took to the jungle in South Mexico, where I stayed for almost a year. It was early 2002. In that time I also began the journey of emotional healing and developing a new understanding of life. This journey is what has propelled me to create R2 Society.

Indigenous Rights Activist

There was a time I thought I would dedicate my entire life to the Zapatista movement. When I left for Chiapas in late 2000, I was all in. This was a magical adventure that educated me on so many things; above all, it gave me the space to develop my own understanding about life, politics and God/The Universe. It also showed me what I was made of. Although I will not join the Zapatistas, I will always be a fighter for human rights and social justice. And I will always love Mexico

Cult Survivor

I was born and raised in a dangerous, polygamist cult of which my father, Ervil LeBaron, was the leader. I was not allowed to experience the world nor attend public school until I was 20 years old (the cult was disbanded). At this time I was on my own to figure out my new life and reality, and later, heal my emotional trauma and PTSD. The little help I received took me a very long way! I learned to heal myself and coach others, and began seeing my life transform in meaningful ways.

Personal Philosophy

Above all things, I believe in the human being. We have within us everything it takes to restore our planet and society to health – and I am committed to doing my part.
