Kusala Design

I am a fiber artist who works with beads, fiber, fabric and graphic design to create a rich and textured sensual experience. Kusala is a sanskrit word that means right action or intention. I try to bring my work from a deeply centered place. I find my best work comes by 'listening' and responding to the nature of the materials I use. My bead and fiber work take the form of jewelry, tassels and decorative trim. I also create custom garments and costuming for stage and film. My digital design work encompasses both print and web.
