Hi there! My name is Amanda and I am an artist, designer and animal lover! I have studied both Graphic Design and Veterinary Assisting. While these are two different subjects, I have taken what I've learned from both and apply them to the work I do. 

As a designer, I assist clients in building a brand for their business. I do this by working with the client to create the logo that best represents them. We then work together to create the necessary tools that will assist in growing the business such as stationery and photography.


As an artist, I find great joy in producing portraits of the animals that find their way into our hearts. When an owner tells me they can see the personality of their pet in a portrait I have done, I know I've done my job!

I also enjoy working with charities to assist in their design/photography needs as well as donating work that can be used in fundraising efforts. I have worked and volunteered with multiple animal rescues in Ontario over the last 10 years and I continue to be involved in animal rescue. My most recent projects include donating paintings to an Ontario canine rescue to be used in a fundraising auction and building a new website for an Orphanage in Zambia.

For more information on any of my services please contact me, I look forward to hearing from you!

"For anyone that hasn't had art from Amanda May Designs, you are missing out! Amanda is amazingly talented, and will work with you step by step to get the angle you are looking for! With my girl, we did not have a lot of pictures of her... 

Amanda worked very hard and used the pictures I had of her. I highly recommend Amanda May Designs for any and all your art needs!"

Portrait Commission- Graphite

"I commissioned Amanda to draw a portrait of a friends dog that passed away. Amanda did an amazing job. She managed to capture the dogs personality even though I had only given her two poor photos to work from. 

My friend loved the portrait and it is a cherished memorial to her beloved dog."

Portrait Commission- Graphite

Beautiful work! She's drawn all my kitties together 2 of which have sadly gone over the rainbow bridge a long time ago. She is creative and took 3 different pictures of my fur babies and drew them all together in one portrait. Extremely talented at what she does. Highly recommend Amanda.
