My name is Ava May.

I am a San Luis Obispo, California based freelance illustrator and designer. I began Exquisite Paradox in 2019 as a creative outlet, which has since blossomed into a career that is both deeply fulfilling and liberating. At the heart of my creative process is an indulgence in whimsical nostalgia and an exploration of personal transformation. Through my art, I aim to inspire mindfulness and joy in the small moments of everyday life. Each piece reflects my own journey and invites viewers to celebrate the extraordinary within the ordinary.
