Robert Fenwick May, Jr. started scribbling at a young age. A few words of encouragement from his dad and an inspirational gift, of a book by Frank Frazetta, from his late mother were all he needed to ignite a life-long passion for art.
Growing-up in Baltimore, Robert turned the tragedy of his mother’s death into a positive experience by putting his modest inheritance toward the dream of a semester at the Maryland Institute College of Art. Unable to afford to continue at the Institute Robert spent most of his young adult years hunched over a drafting board honing his drawing skills. Later, his love for life and nature lead him to pursue a degree in Biology. All-the-while scribbling in the corners of notebooks during lectures; he earned his degree and became a high school Biology teacher. He continues to share his reverence for life and passion for nature with his students.
Fortunate to be living in Baltimore City, Robert spends whatever free time he gets at the Walters Art Gallery marveling the great masters. In his spare time he creates beautiful drawings like those you see in this collection of trees. These trees are a culmination of his imagination, love of nature, and study of botany. His sincere wish is that you will take pleasure in viewing them and he hopes that they will spark something in your imagination.
A true renaissance man, Robert was awarded a 2nd degree black belt by the Chinese Self-Defense Association, has studied classical music and guitar, practices the art of Bonsai, and has completed advanced degree course work in Education.
