***Flygirl Fridays***

I had the opportunity to take a course called "Flying Lessons" given by a very talented artist - Kelly Rae Roberts. It was an excellent course that covered such topics as letting go of yours fears, going after your true passion, and many other things. One of the best things about the course was, I got meet and learn about a lot of talented artists, all in on different paths, but all working towards making their dreams come true and learning to take flight. Flygirl Fridays is all about these wonderfully talented people and a little bit about them, so you can get to know them as well!
Please join me in welcoming
Kathy May!
Please introduce yourself, who are you and what do you do?
Hi Violet! Thank you so much for having me! My name is Kathy May and I am an artist specializing in inspirational artwork for children.

What is something that you really love, and why?
I really love animals and children. There is something so magical about the way young children think, as though anything is always possible, I really love that. I love animals because I think they bring so much beauty to our lives and so often we don't even realize it.

What would your dream project be?
Really anything that makes a child smile. I would be thrilled to be able to write and illustrate children's books or design paintings for pediatric units in hospitals.

What's the best piece of advice that you've ever received?
God gives us all gifts, in all forms and if you keep them hidden because you're too afraid or shy to share them, then you are not sharing your gifts that you were given.

Where does your inspiration come from?
Teaching children that being kind, honest and doing your best every day feels really good and is important.

What do you think is the biggest thing holding you back?
The ups and downs of the art business.

What change do you think would most help your business grow?
I am currently working full time in addition to my art work and I think if I had more time I would hope to be able to focus more on making that happen.

What's the biggest thing that you took with you from Flying Lessons?
All of the amazing friendships we have formed.
