Acey May was born in Yakima, Washington but raised in Iowa. She pursued an Elementary Education degree at Washington University, and was required to take an Art Instruction class, where she began to experiment with art herself. Acey realized she had a love and talent for art. Her previous doodles lead her on a path to discover a love and passion for Henna design and tattoos, which are drawn on the skin. Acey has pioneered the use of Henna techniques on a standard canvas. As with Henna, Acey uses acrylic paint in a cone similar to a pastry cone to create her art on canvas, and by utilizing this technique she has created an entirely new art medium and style.
Acey is currently working on Bella the Caterpillar, a children’s book in multimedia book format written by 7 year old Marisol Paramo with music by Christian Orellana. She currently resides in Albuquerque, New Mexico. She is the founder of Acey May’s Henna. Acey continues to create art with both Henna and acrylic paint, with her 2 year old daughter Luna.
