Kotsala focuses on the relation between universal human issues namely of birth and death, with their projection in the physical environment. She works primarily with painting but also dabbles in mediums such as mosaic, land art, sculpture, glass fusing and video, which allows her to experiment with different textures and forms, while challenging the traditional boundaries of art as a mere visual experience. One of the distinctive characteristics of her practise is the use of natural materials such as stones, marble, glass, wood, pistachio shells, earth and light. Through a tactile and sensory process she creates environmentally conscious art.
