Originally from New Mexico, Leda moved to the Washington, DC area in 2010. She trained in philosophy as an undergraduate and in the book arts in graduate school (book design, letterpress printing, hand bookbinding, printmaking, creative writing, typographic design). She is a graphic designer and has worked in computer graphics and photographic imagery for many years. In 2014 she opened an art studio in Washington, DC, Black Lab, which is often open to the public. It is on the Arts Walk at Monroe Street Market in the Brookland neighborhood. Leda hopes to produce a series of Blurb-printed books, marrying her interest in the book form with her photo-based digital art practice.
