About me

Hi my name is Leya.

I’m a passionate graphic design graduate and illustration student from Zurich, Switzerland.

Besides graphic design I’m very passionate about illustration. I’m very lucky to be broadening my horizon in this subject and working on my bachelors degree in visual communication with the focal point on illustration at HSLU.

I was born and raised in Zurich. I still live in the same house in the same village ever since. Right now, I’m residing and Studying in Lucerne at HSLU.


Besides working and studying I own an Etsy Shop where i sell my art.

My biggest dream is to own a dog one day. I’d call him something funny like bug or bean or maybe Heinz. Please hire me so I can adopt a dog some day.
