Bio: Yewande Kotun Davis is a Nigerian American artist and designer based in Baltimore, Maryland. She grew up heavily involved in the arts, but ultimately pursued a career in healthcare. Yewande resumed painting in 2015 after a series of traumatic personal events, and continued to develop her craft. In 2020, Yewande pivoted from corporate to practice art full-time—a proverbial homecoming. Her current work is the external manifestation of her internal dialogues as she examines the people, places and spaces that we call home. Through various media, she utilizes her art for self-care and community care with the goal to encourage healing and reclaim joy as our divine birthright.
