Maria May

Location: London, Stratford

Technical artist based in London, originally from Preston in the Northwest of England. Upon Graduating from Wimbledon college of art I have gone on to create work for a variety of companies.

Some clients including: John Lewis, Samsung, Cath Kidston, Harrods, Davidoff, London drawing, Esprit, Stories4Change, Suvretta, London New Years day Parade.... Working as designer, maker and installation artist for several props, puppets and sets.

I also had the privilege to be part of Disney’s The Lion King puppet department. Working alongside the touring show in the UK and Ireland maintaining puppets and masks used in the performance. Now having left the tour I work freelance with the puppet department on the London production.

As and Artist I enjoy working with many materials to draw, design, create, build, develop and finish props, costume, puppets, set and sculptures to excite the senses of any audience. I have also worked for clients requiring proposals and presentations with technical drawings and concept illustrations, involving small replica sets if requested.

I love being able to change from one material to another working on various projects to keep my hands busy with varied processes, no matter how messy the job.
