Hi, I’m Leah; a maker at heart.

I’ve worn many hats, like: writer, editor, designer, textile artist. All to say I use words, images and materials to tell stories and make complex ideas into simple things you can read, see and feel.

Words and images

I work in the nebulous world of content creation. My skill lies in marrying voice with visuals to communicate ideas in clear yet creative ways.

I started writing online as a teen in 2006, teaching myself to build websites, design graphics, take photos, edit images and craft sentences in the process.

I kept it up through design school and, since then, I’ve worked for various charities, public bodies and creative businesses, mainly with a social or environmental focus. I’ve told stories, conveyed information and found interesting ways to connect with their audiences using words and design. Find examples nested in Projects.

I sometimes still write in my own voice too. Take a look in Notes or Writing for that.


Alongside, I make textile-based works to examine our relationship with the material world. My work here explores the things that shape our everyday – be that design objects or social norms – and how they affect who we are and the world we live in.

I hold a first class honours in Fashion Design from UWE Bristol and distinction in MA Fashion Futures from London College of Fashion. My interests in this realm are sustainability, craft, creativity and expression. I favour natural or reclaimed materials, embroidery, fabric manipulation and slow methods of making.

Through my work, I aim to offer gentle approaches into deeper topics. Often using humour or poetics to talk about subjects like nostalgia, beauty ideals, everyday sexism and more. Find an archive of my work in Projects.
