Born in 1988 in Elgin, Illinois to a Puerto Rican father and African American mother, Alisa's artwork is a fusion of the two cultures. Her work is a fusion of Abstract and modern art. Alisa's influences include- Julio Rosado De Valle, Henri Matisse, Helen Frankentheler and Charles Alston. Alisa studied under Linda Rawls, a fine artist, from Daytona, Florida at the Paint Pot Studio in Andalusia, Alabama for two years. There, she learned and master many of her own techniques. Her recent collection, titled Tiempo, was inspired by the death of her brother. He was murdered in 2015. The clocks in the paintings represent the time his life ended. She holds on to his memory by incorporating him in her paintings.
Alisa's work can be found in private art collections both in the United States and abroad, she has several exhibitions this year. She currently lives and works in Andalusia, Alabama.

This, playful, colorful, canvas is a mixture of love. The name was inspired by the thought of what love would smell like. Imagine the aroma of one of the most beautiful emotions in the world. I visualize bright colors, flowers and passion. This painting gives the chance to look into one selves and reflect, it is a true inspiration for every's life.
