about the Artist
Carol May

Who is Carol May? I have been painting for many years. I give God all the glory for my gifts.

My heartfelt desire is to share my knowledge and the joy of painting with others.

I graduated from the University of California at Davis with a major in horticulture and minors in art and chemistry.

I taught horticulture for several years in California. I also enjoyed teaching painting classes in Florida.

I am a nature lover.

I have lived in the country almost all of my life.

I have always had a love for nature and God's beautiful creations.

My husband and I started bird watching several years ago. We went on Audubon field trips and learned to identify many of the Florida birds.

We put up bird feeders and a hummingbird feeder. We soon had a myriad of birds coming to our back yard.

Identify the hummingbirds that visit the United States.

We learned to identify the common types of butterflies that visited the flowers in our yard.

Art by Carol May was born.

Planting flowers became a priority to attract more of them to our backyard.

I started photographing and painting the birds, butterflies and hummingbirds.

I love God's creations and my goal as an artist is to share that beauty with others.

Pretty soon the paintings were running out of the spare bedroom. I started selling paintings and my art business was born.

I sign my paintings with my first and middle name - Carol May.
My last name is Britton.

I hope you enjoy my work, as much as I enjoy doing it.

There are some of my Original Paintings and Prints for sale.

Spring Beauty painting by artist Carol MaySpring Beauty


Never have I considered myself a writer or an author. Then the Lord begin waking me up at night and told me to write a book about prayer. I would pour through the scriptures and write what He told me.

Thus came the book "Devil Stomping Prayer". He had me write all the basics of how to pray. And about the spiritual weapons He has given us to defeat the devil.

God has blessed me with various abilities that I am using to share His love and beauty. My prayer is that others may come to know the peace and joy I have through Jesus Christ.

If you have any questions or comments, don't hesitate to contact me.

Many blessings to you all, Carol May Britton.
