Leah Kudel grew up in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan in a house that seemed to always have an abundance of bungee cords and medical equipment. Her childhood was spent designing, creating, and inventing with anything she could get her hands on. In 2002 she graduated from the University of Alberta with a degree in Art Education, and instead of becoming a teacher she decided to travel the world. Three years in Norway and twenty-two countries later, she moved back home to Canada in order to pursue her life-long dream of being an artist. After receiving her Bachelor of Fine Art in Glass at the Alberta College of Art & Design in 2014, she became the Production Manager at ChoChoMa Studios in Dubai, UAE. Today she can be found making art at every opportunity and exploring the Middle East in her pursuit of a creative and exciting life.
