Leah Goren illustrations

Leah Goren, the Brooklyn-based artist, is best known for her unique and eye-catching illustrations and ceramics – playing with patterns and colours that aren’t typical of the medium.

As clichéd as it might sound, she has a knack for making the ordinary extraordinary. Leah is a well of inspiration, with patterns dedicated to everyday detail – from cats and girls to plants – that she works into a variety of products including scarves and totes. Her lively, hand-sketched illustrations have also graced the cover of the renowned Australian magazine, Frankie.
