Maia Evarista Charlotte Ibar was born outside of Paris in 1982. She comes from a large, close knit Basque/French family of creative, intense personalities who emigrated to the U.S. in 1984 and split their time between the U.S. and the Basque region of France. Maia has been making art since she was a child. She attended Walnut Hill School, Parsons Paris, Pratt Institute, and holds a Masters of Painting from The New York Studio School. She has been investigating the process of painting, video, drawing, installation, and music as rituals connected and related to the mind, body, and spirit. The journey and process are a way to teach herself about her sub-consciousness, revealing her deepest emotions and the path that her life has given her. She regards International Integrators as an organization that furthers that important work. Maia is the artist for the “Odyssey Family Systems Companion Guide.” Enjoy her work at www.maiaibar.com.
