Leah Emery is an artist based in Brisbane whose practice is concerned with packaging often difficult content in a shell of mirth and whimsy to pursue her storytelling.

Her works serve as a protest to the cultural etiquette of withholding a healthy public access on topics surrounding gender identity, sex and intimacy despite being so quintessential to the human experience, as well as an objection to cultural tendencies to promote and reward an unhealthy manipulated, homogenised body aesthetic.

She has been exhibiting around Australia since 2005  in which time she has amassed multiple solo shows worldwide, been a finalist in the Blake Prize, Contemporary Art Prize, Kennedy Prize Foundation's Choice Award among others, and innumerous group shows as well as being featured in Huffington Post, Juxtapoz, and a documentary on SBS2's The.
