Anne-May is a visual artist, living and working in Cork City, Ireland. Her primary research broadly explores aspects of the everyday, relying on spontaneity, humour and connections found within the mundane to act as a starting point for her work. Anne-May collects material from her day-to-day life to repurpose and manipulate through drawing, painting and installation. Her practice is driven by her acute interest in the process of art making, and her explorations often manifest themselves as weird and wonderful interpretations of our domestic lives.
The everyday has remained a site of close observation for Anne-May since receiving her BA (Hons) Fine Art Degree in MTU Crawford College of Art and Design, 2018. Since, she has taken part in multiple group exhibitions around Ireland showcasing her playful mixed-media style through installation and excitedly welcomed her first solo show Can You Hear Me Damo? in February 2022.
Since November 2020 Anne-May has worked as the Research Assistant for Drawbridge, the drawing research hub based at MTU CCAD, a group which is exploring contemporary drawing in its widest possible interpretations through projects, discussions and collaborations.
