Artwork that reflects familiar stories — Maybe even yours.
People who view my work, often say that my work creates a story that reflects their own. Quite often that story is one of overcoming a struggle.
I’m Mays Mayhew, and I create artwork that helps people immerse themselves in stories of overcoming and introspection. I like to draw repeated human figures for it weaves a narrative, a story. I create realistic pencil drawings of people, reflected or mirrored, that tell stories using a simple yet beautiful approach.

About the artist: My rural background is grounded in work-ethic-driven farm life. Although a city-dweller for most of my adult life, the farm work ethic enabled a dual career. After art school, I balanced a corporate career while continually producing and exhibiting art. Now I am a professional full-time artist balancing the needs of my family and two preschoolers.
