We had the good fortune of connecting with Diani Guyton and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Diani, why did you pursue a creative career?
I couldn’t help it. It was fun and it’s where I found the people who understand me the best. Once I saw that there were people actually making careers from it, I knew I was supposed to be doing it too.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
The intention behind my creative work is to be approachable, kind, and real. I want to be palatable to my audience. I want to lead with kindness and love. I want to show my real feelings or thoughts with each project I create. I am in the process of discovering and learning. I would say I haven’t “found the one” when it comes to my work yet, I think everything I do is building an education that I will use when I find what I am supposed to be doing . So far my journey has been fun and informative! The number one lesson I’ve learn is “ you don’t need to know what your doing, start, and you’ll learn along the way. Just get working” I want people to find peace where ever they are at right now. This is why I strive for transparency. I think we get caught up in trying to chase something other than now. We are supposed to be present in our strides. Happiness is now.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Oh my! I have a several private Yelp lists. If your in Houston you have to try a Banh Mi sandwich at B&T cafe. I also suggest beers at Axelrad.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I think everyone who gets excited about my work, just as much as I do. People are very supportive and kind. This makes me feel confident in my work! Also my dad has mastered the art of creative and doing what he wants in life, I’ve taken a lot of notes from him.
