Born and raised in San Francisco, I grew up in a family of artists. I am a fan of the Bay Area artist Richard Diebenkorn, his abstracts, his colors and his story. After graduating from San Jose State University, I went to work at Nordstrom, where my time as a women's designer clothing buyer sealed my ability to coordinate color, pattern, and shape.
Moving to the south in 1990, the colors of the seasons further inspired me. I am a self taught, mixed media artist, using pencil, acrylic, and oil pastel to intuitively create interest with line, shape and color.
My true love is sharing art experiences, by teaching children in my art classes, with cancer patients at Caring House in Durham, and at the North Carolina Museum of Art, where I give tours and discuss art with school children and adults. Today I use my art as my way to give. I donate all profits to support organizations such as Wounded Warriors, The ALS Association, Walltown Children’s Theatre, ASPCA, and local schools.

Through my Art Inclusion Program, I work with staff teams to teach them the joy and thrill of creating art, and then I prepare the art they create for display at your corporate workplace.
Your employees can work with Judy May to create the art that will surround them during their workday.
This staff development in the arts program provides team-building, a creative boost, and an empowering way for employees to have a real impact on their working environment.
