About Kyla May

Kyla May lives near the beach in Australia with her husband, three daughters, two dogs, two cats, and four guinea pigs.

Growing up, Kyla lived on a close-knit tree-lined avenue. This is where she met her childhood best friends (who are still her dearest friends). Together they created their own girls club, where Kyla was "president" of sticker collecting and roller-skating activities. Through these childhood best friends, Kyla discovered her endless imagination.

Kyla's first passion is drawing, her second is chocolate.
