Léa Fernandez is a Designer based in Sydney, Australia. With a background of Architecture and Interior Design, she explores ideas of nature, textures and senses through Architecture, Design, Jewelry and Art.

Born in Avignon, a small city in the South of France, Léa moved to Sydney 12 years ago. The contrast between the heritage listed city she grew up in and the modern spirited sea side of Sydney plays a big part in her sensitivity to design.

From a young age, Léa has been using her creativity to escape a situation or to express herself.  Her main inspirations have been drawn from old art house movies, nature and people.

Léa would describe her creative process as being one that allows her to breathe deeper. She doesn’t follow rules to draw or paint. She doesn’t try to draw what she is seeing but what she is feeling; connecting with her subject through her intuition and sentiments.

Léa has exhibited in Sydney and Melbourne and has been commissioned internationally. Collaborations have included: Fashion designer Celeste Tesoriero, fashion designer Ginny and Jude, J.V REID and Architecture competitions. Léa’s work has also been featured in NR Magazine VOL. 06 Talent, Smack Bang Design Website, Noel & Gladys’ Website and Lea’s poems were featured in The Secret Kitchen Cookbook.
