Keep Moving Forward

Hi! I'm Leah.

I'm a one-woman design and illustration (and occasionally letterpress) studio based just outside of Syracuse, NY. I love creating things that are tangible, feel good in your hands, and have a story to tell.

Since going through a bone marrow transplant in 2016 to treat Acute Myeloid Leukemia I've been passionate about supporting cancer patients the best way I can, so I donate a portion of all the Positive Project sales to cancer centers & patients. Much of my work is inspired by the amazing people I met while fighting cancer, their stories, and the hope that I can reach more and more patients every year with the kind of bright, positive, encouraging messages I was so fortunate to be surrounded by on my own journey.

My favorite things: 2-ply business cards letter-pressed on my C&P Pilot, recyclable packaging, writing little thank you notes in outgoing orders, and riding my bike to the post office.
