Aisla’s creations illustrate the alchemy of science, engineering, nature, culture, language, music, literature and the expressive arts. Aisla was born in London and grew up along the Rio Grande in a city which borders Texas, New Mexico, and Mexico. She was raised in a city which has a varied and rich cultural history which included Mexican, American West, Native American, Middle Eastern, European, Asian and French and Spanish Colonial influences. This unique combination of experience, culture and language is reflected in Aisla’s art. Aisla’s mural projects, music, jewelry and art have been featured at the deYoung, SFMOMA, and SOMArts Galleries, as well as public and private collections throughout the United States and Europe.
