Alberni’s bi-cultural heritage and upbringing are woven throughout the fabric of her art. She brings layers together in a variety of techniques and materials to build her framework, and geometry, color and symbolism fuse to complete her narrative. Her aesthetic blends expressive and graphic elements across all her bodies of work.
Current works are driven by the plights of endangered animals and all other living beings whose current predicaments underscore how urbanism, infoglut, and virtual reality alter existence and how it is experienced.
Bringing awareness and igniting conversation and new behaviors about the systemic impact of technology and caustic human behavior on all life on the planet is a responsibility she feels deeply.
Alberni was born with Marfan Syndrome, a connective tissue disorder which has made her prone to aneurysms over the course of her life. She regards this life long and threatening condition as crucial to her extreme level of empathy and hyperawareness. It is perhaps why her work often requires verbal commentary in order to be read legibly because so much of the work is rooted in hope and survival.
She has been practicing as an art educator, art administrator, graphic designer, and studio artist since the mid '90s and has fully dedicated to her own art for more than a decade. She currently works from her Mount Holly, NC studio.
Alberni earned a BS in art education with a concentration in printmaking.
She has been the featured artist in many venues. She has been the recipient of multiple grants and awards, and has exhibited and sold to collectors on several continents.
Alberni is open to Commission work, corporate partnerships and alternative space exhibits.
