Olivia Kissel is a vibrant voice in Contemporary Ethnic Dance and a designer with a lush, unique perspective.

As a dancer, she is known for infusing concept-driven work with passionate expression and smooth technique.  Her emotive  approach to dance results in lyrical, dynamic stage presentations.

Inspired by her travels and performance art, Olivia designs jewelry and sculptural pieces for the home that weave a rich tapestry of movement, light and texture. Her work is evocative of exotic locations and bygone eras, yet is fresh as morning dew.

Throughout her career as an artist and performer, Olivia has woven her love of ethnographic textiles, nature, botany, yoga, and light play into her work.  These themes and imagery find their way into her sculptural work.  In recent years, Olivia has focused on CNC processes to create decorative and architectural pieces for installations and homes.
