Yorta Yorta Woman
Alkina is from a small country town called Echuca (Yorta Yorta Country) but has just recently moved to Shepparton with her fiancé. She has always been passionate about creating all sorts of artwork, but her love has always been in cultural art.
“I’ve always loved seeing the Aboriginal Artwork showcases on their merchandise and seeing Indigenous Models wear their clothing has always warmed my heart. I remember years ago before I wanted to step into the art career space I wish I could have my art represented like this and now that’s coming true.” - Alkina
