About the artist
Originally from the wilds of the Yukon Territory, Leah is a naturalist and extreme hiker who’s lived in Vancouver for nearly twenty years. There’s a calling for The North that Leah will never shake from her bones, but she finds herself entranced by west coast trees. She’s an avid naturalist and fierce environmentalist who cares deeply for our environment and all beings who live on our earth. A member of the 2SLGBTQIA+ community, she is an advocate for equal rights for all beings and has been an active member in Vancouver’s queer community for many years, partaking in many events including performing and vending at Vancouver City Pride.
