May was first introduced to art in upstate New York. In the mid-eighties, she transitioned to watercolours and began educating herself under noted painters from the Lakeshore and Ontario Communities. Since then she has learned to express herself, painting in watercolour, acrylic, oil and mixed media. Constantly learning and through working experience she has come to the realization about the importance and the effect of light in her paintings.
May’s art is part of numerous private collections around the world. She has received several awards and also shares her passion by volunteering her time in current and former programs such as the Arts Plus Therapy Programme at C.H.S.L.D. Bayview.
