Leah Sturgis

Statement
I was born and raised in Chicago and have had a creative artistic sense since day one. My parents once said "if you give Leah enough paper and tape she’ll build a house." This I believe captures my interest in creating with whatever materials are available. My puzzle-like designs started as piles of beads on my work table.

I lived in Alaska for many years. You’ll see it’s influence with my use of porcupine quills, antler, horn, wood and fossilized ivory in many of my pieces. I now live in Alexandria, Virginia with my husband. We feel very fortunate to have our days filled with art.
