Collector’s Choice: Jinnie May


About the Artist

Jinnie May – Biography

Art has been in my life since childhood however it got pushed to the side while I began a career in a non-art related position in the pharmaceutical industry. After retirement in 2000 I took a watercolor class in Bermuda with Bryan Atyeo, a wonderful Canadian artist and teacher. That was enough to spur my interest and suddenly I was hooked.




Since then I have taken many classes with well known instructors including, but not limited to; Toni Chaplin, Frank Webb, Serge Hollerbach, Skip Lawrence, Don Andrews, Judi Betts, Alvaro Castagnet, John Salminen and Pat Dews. I truly admire the California watercolor artists of the past; Rex Brandt, George Post and Barse Miller and many others. I have many of their books and their paintings enhance my enthusiasm and inspiration.

I’ve been experimenting with different media and surfaces and I guess you could say subject matter as well. In the past two years I’ve added quite a few new paintings to my abstract collection.
Since 2004 I have exhibited in many local and statewide shows, winning numerous awards and many of my original paintings are in private collections.
