LaToya M. Hobbs is a native of North Little Rock, AR. She received B.A degree in Studio Art with an emphasis in Painting from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock and her MFA in Printmaking from Purdue University. LaToya’s work deals with figurative imagery that addresses the ideas of beauty and cultural identity while reexamining the traditional triadic artist, model, viewer, relationship. Most recently she has expanded her practice to encompass ideas about maternity and the role of women as preservers of family, culture and community. Her exhibition record includes several national and international exhibitions and her work has also been featured in Transition: An International Review, a publication of the W.E.B. Dubois Institute for African and African American Research at Harvard University. In addition to her own studio practice, LaToya devotes her time to teaching and inspiring young artists as a Professor at the Maryland Institute College of Art, Baltimore, MD
