Artist Statement ::

Noire Femme is an art installation inspired by my journey as an African American woman. Dedicated to all women, the  greatest inspiration behind each piece  comes from the diverse beauty that we as women encompass  no matter our background. We are inundated with messages of discontentment  and many times look outwardly to find our definition of self. The message of “Noire Femme” is to love yourself , appreciate your unique genetic code, true beauty comes from within, and our intrinsic value is more than skin deep.

LaQuita is a mixed-media Tacoma, Washington artist, with a background in film development.
