May was born in to a world where being a girl was not always something to be proud of. She started out with drawing happy princesses and unicorns and butterflies but soon her attention shifted over to the darker side of things and her princesses became tortured and disfigured female subjects with no way out of what was imposed on them. Even though this way of portraying a female has rarely changed in her mind, the power attribution certainly has. Mays’ girls are now heroines and queens and destroyers and seducers and tricksters and evil mothers with possession issues – all with the same denominators: power, self awareness, control. Nevertheless she seeks to portray them as beautiful and charismatic creatures with power to stop the world with a single stare, with continuous exploration of their human condition. May seeks inspiration in all that is ugly, atrocious, sad, brutal, twisted and mad only to create her own playground, her own world where being a girl is something sweet and pleasant and where there is no place for shame and desolation she once knew.
Mays’ primary passions are painting and drawing, but she also creates unique accessories, designs tattoos, dwells in the graphics field and basically does just about anything that would keep her occupied in the realms of art.
