About Candice Leigh

Hello! I'm the force behind Candice Leigh. I'm a curious and passionate designer. I'm a lover of nature and a bit of a nomad. I take inspiration from my many homes in my work, from my quiet Michigan roots, to my young adventures in Sweden to my current bustling home in Seattle, Washington. I hope my interpretation of our fascinating world, in all its beauty, vibrancy, and whimsy brings you enjoyment. Many thanks!
