Freelance illustrator and designer
from the New Forest, England.
Hello, howdy, hey, I'm May!
Graduated from the Arts University Bournemouth with a First Class
BA (Hons) in Illustration and a distinction in a Foundation diploma in art & design.
Being an avid pattern designer and typography lover, I take pride in producing greetings cards for people to share intimate moments in their lives. I enjoy taking inspiration from nature and the surrounding area here in the New Forest and the South Coast, England.
My designs are created using a fusion of hand rendered and digital techniques. My portfolio range is growing rapidly, meeting customer demands for specific bespoke themed cards. My unique style and use of a vibrant colour palette, catches the eye and stands out against competitors when on display together in store.
I exhibit at many craft fairs, where I enjoy speaking to the general public and seeing my work come to life in product form, such as on bags, greetings cards and printed gifts. I am happy to take commissions and have already designed a number of bespoke items for clients.
I exhibited at the Handmade fair at Hampton court in September 2018. I had a fantastic time showcasing my work and talking to fellow stall holders and customers. I even met Kirstie Allsopp, who loved my work!
My next exhibition is Top Drawer at Olympia in London, which is a trade fair.

Dinosaur A to Z
"We got your dinosaur print for our son as a gift, and as I didn't recognise any of the dinosaur names (apart from Tyrannosaurus I think) I assumed they were made up. I now realise I was wrong and don't know my dinosaurs, but was interested as to your choice of "non -common" dino names, like fukuiraptor. Son loves it, and it looks great on his wall."
