Hello there!  My name is Kathy May and I am an artist living in the western suburbs of Chicago, IL with my family and my new collie puppy, Caleb. I absolutely love to encourage the feeling of optimism and grace in my work! I think its so important for all of us to face life's challenges from this perspective, especially children. My goal in my work is create designs that will not only touch to your heart or bring a smile to your face, but also give children something bright and beautiful to look at that will encourage them every single day along their journey.

My own kids have been very patient with me as I have developed my art career, often times wishing I could just "paint" them a good meal for dinner, but I have yet to master that skill.  I would if I could though!
