At the age of 5, May You held her first calligraphy brush. By the time she was 15 years old, May You had been awarded scholarships and certified at the highest rank of shodō, the Japanese art of calligraphy.

May You’s specialty is in creating astounding works that are rich with delicate, yet dynamic details. From basic script to ancient characters dating back 3,000 years, she masterfully guides her brush fluidly between and across a multitude of distinct forms. The foundation of May You’s work is built upon traditional shodō, with much of her calligraphy having classical roots. Once her pieces were introduced to the world via social media, they summoned a flood of requests and wide acclaim.

Informed by “ma”, the uniquely Japanese philosophy of negative space, May You pursues beauty in the margins and spatial design, and conveys it through concepts of stillness and motion.

Driven by the desire to spread the charm of shodō throughout the world, May You offers original works to diverse clients globally.
