The Alberetti says, “I create works in which I hope to distill both the beauty and lessons of antiquity, as I explore how the fragments of a culture embody its aesthetic and philosophical underpinnings.” Her reliefs are often influenced by her many travels to Italy, Spain, France, Turkey and Ireland.
