For a bit less than a decade, Pamela Diaz Martinez designed for Esquivel, a luxury shoe brand based in California, with a roster of celebrity clients. Designs were featured in major fashion magazines, newspapers and blogs, such as: Vogue, The Wall Street Journal, Esquire, Men’s Health, Marie Claire, LA Times and others. In late 2015 after her last major commercial project, Pamela left the fashion industry and returned to her love: drawing and painting.
With experience teaching art to elementary through college level on the East and West coasts, Pamela discovered a wellspring of inspiration working at religious schools with students who worship and discuss God on a regular basis.
In 2014, Pamela’s experimental work was featured along side Odd Nerdrum, Steven Assael and Jerome Witkin in an exhibition representing Southern California Figurative Art. Over the years she served as a guest lecturer, panelist and was asked to speak at The Bakersfield Museum of Art in April 2015 about her most recent body of work also featured in the museum.
Pamela lives and works in Atlanta, Georgia.
