Kala is a self-taught artist. Her training largely comes from being part of a very artistic family including a father who builds fine guitars, a mother who is a master gardener and fiber artist, and sisters who make jewelry, do paper art, and write poetry. She has a degree in pure mathematics from the University of Oregon, has worked in education and publishing, and is the mother of three young children.
Kala has worked in various mediums over the years, including photography, pen and ink, watercolor, acrylic, beads, clay, felt and other fabric, and paper including quilling. She is currently focusing on rock painting and applying the techniques and images used on her rocks to other art projects.
