Hello everyone my name is Diamond Payne, I am from Orlando FL and as you can see I am an artist. Growing up I was exposed to art and quickly gained an interest in it. As a child my passion was drawing, I would draw whenever I had the opportunity. And if I found any scrap paper laying around it would soon be filled with tons of sketches. I have always been interested in 2D animation. Growing up I remember watching all the classic movies from Disney, Dreamworks, Don Bluth Films and Warner Brothers. I was just amazed by all the work that went into these films and how the animators could put so much life into their drawings. Watching these films inspired me to increase my skills as an artist and also inspired me to become an animator someday.

I completed my first year of college at Seminole State with a focus in interior design. Seminole State gave me the foundation I needed as an art major. While researching opportunities in the arts I found Full Sail University. I have a love for art but I also have a big interest in technology. Full Sail gave me the opportunity to combine technology and art to create those animations I appreciated as a child.

As you browse my website I hope you enjoy the animations I have created. Animation is truly my passion and I am glad that I have chosen to pursue a career in the entertainment industry. I have now graduated with my Bachelors of Science Degree in Computer Animation and I am looking forward to working with you in the near future.
