Poller's art delves deeply into the human condition, merging classical techniques with modern themes. Her figurative sculptures, often cast in bronze, capture intimate and personal aspects of her subjects, making each piece a "doppelganger" or diary in bronze. This dedication to creating relatable, human-centric art provides a profound commentary on identity, intimacy, and the shared human experience.

Leah Poller received classical training at the prestigious École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris. During her 24 years in Paris, she immersed herself in the international arts communities of France, Spain, Italy, and Latin America. Returning to the United States in 1992, Poller established her studio in a Soho loft and embarked on her acclaimed 'Beds' series. 

This series has been showcased in over 40 individual and group exhibitions across Europe, Mexico, China, and the United States, gaining global recognition. In 2010, Poller's artistic journey took a significant turn when she began collaborating with China's world's largest bronze-casting foundry. This partnership led to substantial recognition and multiple exhibitions in Shanghai, Beijing, and Hong Kong. Notably, she was the only foreigner and American selected to exhibit at the Beijing Biennale of Female Sculptors. 

In 2023, Poller received the Manhattan Arts International Woman Artist of the Year Achievement Award. She was recently inducted as one of 23 3-dimensional artists and as Chairperson in the New York Society of Women Artists (NYSWA) in its 99th year and has been vetted as a member of the Sculptors' Guild.
