A digital finger artist and designer, Alkina’s works are about self expression, self-determination, identity, sharing stories, culture, family and love.

Surrounded by family who are heavily involved in community, mob and culture, Alkina was drawn to the beauty of art from a young age as a way to express emotions, tell your truth, stories and history. Her artworks combine modern technology with traditional techniques.
