Diamar Payano is a self taught Illustrator & Designer currently based in New Jersey. She graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Marketing and for over six years, created a career as a Visual Merchandiser and Artist. As a Visual Merchandiser, Diamar worked with innovative and creative brands like Anthropologie, J. Crew and Bloomingdale's.
"I graduated with a degree in Marketing; but since I can remember, I've always loved art. Like many creatives, Disney played a big role for me in wanting to become an artist. Researching artists and practicing all of their techniques, I taught myself how to draw and "perfect" my own style."
Soon after, realizing her childhood memories of wanting to become an Artist was not only a dream but a part of her identity, she began her journey as a Freelance Illustrator and Designer. In 2018, Diamar was featured in New Jersey’s Bergen County’s favorite, BC Magazine as 2018 Artist of the Spring/Summer. To read the full article, click here.
