Sarita with Nance Klehm

Sarita is a student of ecology from an earth-based spiritual perspective. She is a plein air painter capturing the systems and memory of place. She received an MFA from UCLA in 2012 and teaches with the University of Redlands and Cypress College. Her heart is currently on a mountain in Yangna (Los Angeles) where she lives and works with her partner and baby.

In this interview, Nance and Sarita speak about healing through decolonizing aesthetics, ecology and education and her achievement of off-grid living in downtown Los Angeles.
