Fluent in Spanish & English.
Tina Alberni is a full-time artist. When she is not in her painting studio, she is designing and creating eco-friendly jewelry. 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 and is of Hispanic heritage. The vibrancy of her culture is evident across her art expression.
She brings layers together in a variety of techniques and materials to build her framework, and geometry, color, and symbolism fuse to complete a narrative. Click HERE to read my artist statement.
In the past 3 decades she has been a graphic designer, an art educator, an art department Chair, a business and gallery owner, she has served on boards and jury panels, and has been the featured artist in many venues.
Also, over the years she has been the recipient of multiple grants and awards and has exhibited and sold to collectors on several continents. 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.
Over the years, her art and public works have been published and covered in various print and online media outlets, and she has an online presence.
She practices her art full-time out of her Huntersville art studio, and is open to commission work, corporate partnerships and alternative space exhibits
