Hello! I’m Ley, a writer & artist located in Nova Scotia.

I write horror & fantasy young adult novels. I’ve participated yearly in NaNoWriMo since 2009 (including a couple Camp NaNos sprinkled in). My work is inspired by things I love — monsters & urban decay, faeries & cyberpunk, circuses & zombies, & more.

I create (mostly) watercolour & (some) digital art inspired by fairytales and mythology, 80s cartoons and comic books, and fierce ladies. I love saturated colours, granulating paint, and bold lineart. For recent work, visit leysketch.net, or you can watch me create on YouTube.
