What We Do


Tim Watkins and Carol May were first trained as fine artists. They use this training, sensibility, and creativity to design and build unique, interactive, educational exhibits for children, play spaces, and public art projects. Each project is one of a kind, created just for the client, site specific, and a marriage of art and play.

We Design & Build

This is key to the success of May + Watkins projects as it ensures nothing gets lost in the translation from drawings and models to the finished product. Each person on the production team is a skilled craftsperson with an ingrained sense of artistry, and a mandate to create excellent, extraordinary work. Each show is special and important. and a chance to explore and shine in a different arena.
