I was born and raised in the Appalachian mountains of Southern Pennsylvania. There I honed my artistic skills and love for nature.  


I attended Moore College of Art and Design, America's only all women's art college.  I graduated with honors with a Bachelor of Fine Art in Three Dimensional Fine Art with a focus on Non-Ferrous Metals.  



Both my parents are herbalists and instilled me with a great appreciation for natural living.  Inspired to take this appreciation to the next level, I got my Traditional Naturopath degree from Trinity School of Natural Health.  I use this knowledge to create my line of small batch, handcrafted body products- Leah Markus: Self Love.



Whatever I make, be it jewelry, art, or body products, I craft with love and skill, all by hand. I am dedicated to making high-quality products.  I only use the finest materials and make every component by hand.
