Hello, my name is May Leong. I am a Surface Designer from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Since at a very young age, I have an affinity for beautiful and cute things. However I did not further develop and pursue a career related to my interest. Instead I have worked as a HR Professional in Corporate America for almost two decades.
I had a soul searching journey after quiting my job and discover the world of surface design by chance in 2013. In 2014, I went to Northern Europe for holidays. In Helsinki, I saw a queue outside a Musuem where Tove Jansson's 100 Year Celebration Exhibition was held. The beautiful smiles and laughters of the little children when the Moomin Mascot appeared melted my heart and given me a very deep impression.
Later, I took various surface courses including Lily Roger's MATS A & B as well as ABSPD (Art & Business of Surface Pattern Course) to learn the skills of illustrations, design and surface pattern design. Eventually, I bought a wacom tablet and began my creative journey as a Surface Designer. Colours and patterns make the world a more beautiful and interesting place. It is my sincere hope that I can create art and surface patterns to provide more choices and options to you and your love ones to celebrate life occasions and beautiful moments; to beautify your living environment and surroundings to make your every day life even more pleasant and lively !
