Madison Nicole May was born in 1994 in Grand Rapids, Michigan. She studied Printmaking locally at Kendall College of Art and Design (KCAD) in pursuit of her Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree which she obtained in May of 2016. Themes in her work vary, though often include those of traditional gender roles, domesticity, abuse, and examining the impacts of those conditions on individuals and their relationships. 

Notable accomplishments include receiving the distinction of a Jurors Choice Award for the Michigan Emerging Graduate Artists Juried Exhibition (MEGA) 2016 at the Urban Institute for Contemporary Arts in Grand Rapids, Michigan. She has been a visiting artist at the Lamont Gallery in Exeter, NH and recently completed her first residency at Zea Mays Printmaking in Florence, MA. In the summer of 2017 she opened Bend Gallery on the Avenue for the Arts which specializes in affordable gallery exhibition space for emerging artists.
