Regarding the name Kasha, I’ll bet I can tell you a few things about it you didn’t know:
Firstly, in ancient Sumerian it means Gate (ka) of the Bird (sha)
In ancient Egyptian it means Spirit (ka) of Good Fortune (sha)
In terms of gematria (giving each letter of the alphabet a number) it adds up to 40 – which is the sacred number of Ea/Enki, the Sumerian/Babylonian god of the waters, and also as you know the number 40 comes up often in the Bible (40 days and nights for the ark at sea), 40 years in the wilderness for the Jews etc etc. Symbolically, 40 represents the completion of a cycle of ordeal.
In Sansksrit kasha means a touchstone…
Kasha Elizabeth, J.D., comes to art by way of really not wanting to be a lawyer.
A lifelong artist, she is always playing with materials to explore new ways of creating beautiful things. Currently, some of her focuses include deconstructing and recontextualizing visual elements, creating by-products of the worlds of the fantastic, and pushing the limits of glitter as an artistic medium.
Many of her canvases collage elements from comic books, combining pointed social commentary with intriguing beauty, while others are shiny works intended to simply be pleasantly emotionally evocative. The only universal element in her constantly evolving style is use of color in a way that communicates viscerally.
While not making art or artistically hypnotizing people over the internet, Kasha’s passions include soaking up new experiences, playing games, soaking in hot tubs, and replacing Pirate/Ninja with Alien/Human/Robot.
She currently lives in a town north of Seattle, and she travels extensively with her canine companion and protector, Carly.
