May has always created since very young. Later in life, she studied at the Art Students League of Denver and has presented her creations in The Golden Triangle, Greenwood Village, Evergreen Center for the Arts and various other places on the Front Range.
Creating works of oil paint, acrylic, ink, watercolor, pastel and collage most of her work has been centered around the inter-dimensionality of nature; animals and landscapes.
Recently; May's pottery creations reflect wabi-sabi – a Japanese aesthetic where the worldview is a definition of beauty that is imperfect, impermanent and incomplete. She also draws inspiration from indigenous peoples and ancient pottery.
A native of Colorado, May contentedly resides in rural western Colorado outside of Paonia where she receives inspiration for her life from the animals, insects, organic orchards, beautiful ranch and farmlands, mountains; dessert type adobes, vast countryside; rivers and mountainous regions of the North Fork Valley and night sky.
