Maia Kaisa Sortor Biography

Maia Kaisa Sortor




Maia Kaisa Sortor Ballis is an artist, farmer, and one of the founding members, with husband George Ballis and Berge Bulbulian, of National Land for People (NLP). NLP was a group active in Fresno and the Central Valley during the 1970s and 1980s which fought to retain the family farm model of agriculture through political organizing, photography and self-publishing. Ballis’ paintings and collages channel a deep connection between the self, land and environment.
