Alisa Ross graduated from the Kansas City Art Institute in 1997 with a BFA in Fiber Design. In school, Alisa focused on loom weaving and silk dying using graffiti lettering as inspiration, which later transitioned to more 3D work and Soft Sculpture. Scribe and Alisa later got married and started a family where she took time off to focus on her family and be one of the best Moms ever! Alisa and Scribe have been together for over 18 years. Their two sons are still young, but are now at an age where they can participate in artwork and allow her getting some work done without burning the house down!
Now that Alisa is producing work again, she has pulled her sewing machine back out to create all sorts of tiny friends and monsters! Since custom plush sculpture has started to make its way into more gallery work, she has started to create larger more conceptual work like life size mounted animal heads and plushie soft creatures for adults and kids alike. Some of Alisa’s work was used on an episode of HGTV’s Showdown, Jennifer Bertrand of Olathe, Kansas won HGTV’s Design Star and was even asked to compete on an episode of Showdown. Alisa’s newer body of work has lead to gallery shows in Kansas City, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, Cincinnati, Hawaii and more. Alisa has also been a featured artist with Cardboard Spaceship at the San Diego Comicon creating limited plush runs.
