Artist Statement


The Grace series is a celebration of black women. I wanted to focus on capturing black women not in pain or them doing something but rather in their stillness and joy.

About the Artist

While she explores various media in pursuit of more precise methods of communication, Lethabo Huma is best known for her born-digital work: “I create digital paintings and illustrations but still follow traditional painting and drawing techniques in order to achieve expressive brushwork textures. I always strive to improve how I translate my emotions and the stories I share through my selection of muses and brushwork.”
