Bold. Edgy. Vibrant.
Illustration & Design.

Hello and welcome! My name is Leah Sayles, and I am an independent illustrator and creative problem solver. I create bold, edgy illustrations and graphic art for a wide variety of commercial and personal means that allow imaginative fantasies to turn into vibrant realities. 


I have a background in fine arts and design and hold a BFA in Graphic Design from the University of Georgia. I work with a variety of themes, based on my unique multifaceted capabilities and clients. With four years of freelance illustration experience following eight years of experience on in-house design teams, I have helped communicate story via visual creativity in order to engage and inspire since 2011. I founded my own creative studio in 2018 to provide high-quality illustrations and unique storytelling to fellow human beings. 


In 2019, I relocated my creative studio to Atlanta, Georgia. From here, I work remotely with clients from across the United States on conceptual projects ranging from book illustrations to mural and brand designs to original character concepts, pop culture portraits, and more. When I am not working on client-based projects, I am working on illustrations focused on pop culture/events, portraiture/characters, witch lore, astrology, and other fantastical themes.


When I am not busy creating, I love to start my day with a fresh cup of coffee and, in my spare time, tend to get lost in sci-fi and fantasy books, love to host game nights, and stay in tune with my spiritual side via daily tarot. In addition to working with my freelance clients, I am currently acquiring my Masters of Fine Arts in Illustration from the University of Hartford's low-residency program, with a graduation date of July 2023.

Would you like to reach out to say hello or are curious about working together?
