At the core of her art practice, Moma aims to empower and uplift the Black Body, especially the Black female body. Unveiling the magic within this race, breaks collective contemporary stereotypes. Thus, changing attitudes and perceptions of Black women, allowing society to re-discover her: Powerful, complex, beautiful, revered, and valuable. Momas hand cut collages are focused on elevating the importance of the Black experience and body. The clarity, discipline, and execution of her work reflects applied strengths from a formal education in architecture.
