LaToya M. Hobbs

American, born 1983

LaToya M. Hobbs is an artist, wife, and mother of two from Little Rock, Arkansas who is currently living and working in Baltimore, Maryland. LaToya’s work deals with figurative imagery that addresses the ideas of beauty, cultural identity, and womanhood as they relate to women of the African Diaspora. She creates a fluid and symbiotic relationship between her printmaking and painting practice producing works that are marked by texture, color and bold patterns. Her exhibition record includes several national and international exhibits in locations such as the National Art Gallery of Namibia, Windhoek, Namibia; Prizm Art Fair, Miami, Florida; and the Community Folk Art Center in Syracuse, New York, among others. Her work is housed in private and public collections such as the Petrucci Family Foundation Collection of African American Art, the National Art Gallery of Namibia, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Winner of the 2020 Janet and Walter Sondhiem Artscape Prize and the 2020 Artist in Residence award at the Joan Mitchell Center in New Orleans, Louisiana, LaToya also devotes her time to teaching and inspiring young artists as a Professor at the Maryland Institute College of Art.
