Born in Tbilisi, Georgia. Live in Lahr, Germany. Studied at the University of Visual Art, Tbilisi, Georgia (until 1995) and at the University of Reutlingen, Germany: textile and fashion design (until 2003). Since 2007, Mai worked at Theater Freiburg as an assistant for opera plays and dance.

In my works I am more and more interested in relevant topics of modern society like for example change of climate, global debts or surrogate motherhood.
