May is a self taught artist and crafter. Born in Los Angeles and raised in the Bay Area, she earned her BFA in Illustration and Animation from San Jose State University. School didn’t provide the experience and enrichment she was expecting; after graduating, she did not pursue a related career. Without a clear direction, she landed in mass manufacturing and retail. Realizing how unfulfilling this path has been, she’s found a renewed enthusiasm for the arts. Acrylics are her primary focus, though she does experiment with other mediums and ways to translate her images into wearable pieces. Her work has been featured at the de Young and
SFMOMA museum stores in San Francisco, under the name TIMMY MAYS.
