Tina Alberni is a full-time artist. When she is not in her painting studio, she is designing and creating eco-friendly jewelry and hand-painting her signature glassware. She earned a BS in art education with a concentration in printmaking.
She defines herself as a semiabstract artist. Her work aesthetic blends expressive and graphic elements across all bodies of work. Much like her years in printmaking, her process is intentional and rational, but her creative journey flows through intuition.
Alberni grew-up between Puerto Rico, Colombia and Miami. Her bi-cultural and vibrant heritage and upbringing weave throughout the fabric of her art, bringing layers together in a variety of techniques and materials to build her framework, and geometry, color, and symbolism fuse to complete a narrative.

In her current work, Alberni examines and responds to current shifting realities all life forms face at the microcosmic and macrocosmic levels, taking deep dives into humanity’s impact on the world, and what happens when humans can't seem to co-exist in balance with nature and technology.
For the past 3 decades, she has worn several creative hats as a former gallery co-owner, art administrator and educator, and web and graphic designer. She has also served on multiple boards and jury panels and is the recipient of multiple grants and awards. Her art has been featured, sold across the U.S and abroad, and been published in both print and online.
Most recently, she received an artist support grant made possible through the support of the North Carolina Arts Council, a state agency, the Blumenthal Endowment, and The Arts & Science Council. She also received, for the second time, a 150K value award by ArtPop Charlotte featuring her work on billboards and digital media throughout the region, and was recently featured for a second time on the front cover of a prestigious University Literary Magazine.
She practices her art full-time out of her Huntersville art studio, and is open to commission work, corporate partnerships and alternative space exhibits
