It's pronounced uh-LEE-suh :)

Hi, I'm Alisa! 


I'm a designer, illustrator and letterer living in San Francisco, CA. My colorful work explores my many interests, the importance of community and social justice, and the nuance and liminality of being an American-born daughter of immigrants from the Philippines. Born and raised in the San Fernando Valley in Los Angeles County, I'm the creator of VLY GRL, which strives to smash the bimbo Valley Girl stereotype one rad accessory at a time.


When I'm not designing, you can find me listening to books and spooky podcasts, running in Golden Gate Park, or singing in the band Vincent Gargiulo National Park.

Want to work together? Drop me a line!
