As a Youth Worker and Student Support Worker with the Vancouver School Board for the past 14 years, Leah discovered a passion for using art to inspire creativity and self-awareness in the students she works with. She is a life-long lover of drawing, writing and playing music but her main medium and creative focus is embroidery and fibre arts.  In March of 2019 Leah turned her hobby and creative outlet into a part time business and created Stray Threads Embroidery. You can find her at craft and flea markets around the lower main land selling hand embroidered artwork, home décor and clothing.
