In her kindergarten graduation, May Ann received
her first award, Best in Creative Arts.
She changed her nickname "Mall" when she
was in Grade 4. Because she chose the initial letters
of her full name. She is a visual artist and
freelance illustrator living in La Union, Philippines.
She is also a painter and has had several
painting exhibits. Her art is inspired by her
own dreams, nightmares, childhood memories,
as well as God, nature, music and other great
artists. She enjoys dreaming, listening to music,
and setting her imagination free into wide colorful skies.
Once inspiration hits her, May Ann’s paintings
and drawings radiate and overflow with her
emotions. She particularly loves making illustration
of her very own whimsical characters Babu and
Abu the Cat.
She illustrated her first children's book
“The Yellow Paperclip with Bright Purple Spots”
written by 2005 Grand Prize PBBY-Salanga winner
Nikki Dy-Liacco and published by Adarna House,
the country’s first and largest publisher of Filipino
children’s books. May Ann has also been
commissioned for a music album, paintings, murals, advertisements and others.
