Moving to Puvirnituq in 1954, Leah began a career as a stoneblock printer. She would author over 95 prints, printing most herself, frequently stonecuts. She held a position in the print shop making prints for other artists. Leah’s work may be found in the collections of the National Gallery of Canada, the Canadian Museum of Civilization, the Winnipeg Art Gallery, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The print shows some fading.
