Wayman Scott is a free-lance artist who initially focused on human figure in the medium of pencil before transitioning to sculpture. Continuing to focus on human figure Wayman uses contemporary, historical, and religious art to pay tribute to heroes, past and present. Wayman’s art highlights the story of the marginalized using Baltimore City as a tapestry. Wayman studied fine arts at Towson University and completed a summer residency at Baltimore Clayworks in 2022. In 2022 Wayman was featured in The Arlington Catholic Herald, the Catholic Virginian, and The Wilmington Dialog.  In 2021 his work was featured in the Catholic Review.


Serving as Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion staff at a local hospital system Wayman aspires for his art to be congruent with his DEI work. He hopes his art can hold a mirror to society with a lens of DEI and social justice.


Wayman is a lifelong student of human figures. After taking a 20-year hiatus from visual art due to a family illness, Wayman returned to visual art in January 2020 and never looked back.


He was the 2021 recipient of the Mary Nyburg Award and completed a summer residency at Baltimore Clayworks in 2022. Wayman’s work has been featured in The Catholic Review, The Wilmington Dialog,


The Black Catholic Messenger, and America Magazine. His first solo show, Earth and Life, which ran from January 14 to March 25, received national press. Most recently Earth and Life was the subject of the film Outlasting Clay 2023.
