Sister Juanita Leonard
Sister Juanita Leonard lives in Montgomery, LA. She grew up in a family of 13 children. Her father was a preacher and farm worker who died when she was very young. Her mother raised the family with the help of her children.
As you drive up to her home and compound, you're stopped cold with all the art surrounding her home and other buildings. She was called early to build a church which sits next to her house. She has a congregation of 11 (at the time we were there) and virtually every flat surface of her home and church and joyfully painted. You can even see painting under the wall to wall carpeting in her home where its slightly torn.
