Leah Flores has always been an artist, but wasn't sure if being and artist was a "real" job, so she earned a BA in Psychology & Humanities and went to work in the mental health field. She worked with kids who were the victims of abuse and had severe diagnosis such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, etc. She LOVED working with those kids, but would come home and work on designs into the early hours of the morning. One day she stumbled across the website, Society6, and uploaded some designs for the heck of it. A few weeks later she sold a phone case and did a little dance around her apartment... more and more of her designs started selling and her career took off from there. She is now working as a full time designer.
