Leah’s multi-media work explores the relationships between people, myth and legend, and the landscapes that storytellers live within. The videos encompass her work combining still visuals, film, and sound, addressing issues of climate change, individualized spiritual development, and mental health, coupling these broad topics with ekphrasis and semiotics to woo the viewer.
2018 saw a further convergence of literary and visual arts for her, and the result was a six-week-long stint with the Surrey Glow Arts Collective at Crescent Beach Pop-up Gallery.
Project work for that exhibit included select pieces from each of her series, and a set of signed, limited-edition chapbooks which include poetry, photography, and digital images in miniature collections. All of these sets have now been sold out.
Several small events were also delivered there on literary arts topics such as Writing Remembrance, Writing the Hygge, and a writer’s shop talk session about the delights of horror, ghost stories, and other hair-raising things on All Hallows Eve.
2019 saw Leah again at Crescent Beach with two different collectives and adding new pieces of art as well as a line of greeting cards to her products.
Limited edition prints, both framed and unframed, can be purchased from Leah’s ArtPal site with buyer-selected custom frame and print substrates.

This project, completed in collaboration with other literary, vocal, and musical artists, documents both a season in the coastal wetland forests of British Columbia and progression from the depths of major clinical depression to the dawn of a more hopeful, energetic state of existence as the depression eases, allowing the victim glimpses of sunlight and the burgeoning life outside the shadows.
