Who is Leah?

A player having a conversation with Leah in Stardew Valley.
She has a fascinating insight into life.

Leah is one of the villagers living near Pelican Town. She’s not exactly a resident in the village, but you’ll find her cottage near Marnie’s Barn. It’s open from 10 AM to 6 PM. She’s known for being artistic but has low self-esteem in terms of displaying her artworks. 

Aside from being an art enthusiast, she’s also interested in foraging for wild meals since it’s a part of her hobby to spend time outside.

Friendships and Relationships

Elliott is her closest friend, but you’ll occasionally find her getting along well with other villagers. She’s not connected to many people because she’s also a newcomer in town. You’ll learn more about her story once you earn enough Friendship Hearts with her.

Heart Events

A player's friendship hearts with Leah in Stardew Valley.
Get that 14-Hearts now!

Upon earning enough Friendship Hearts with her, you should look forward to seeing the following events. They’re exciting scenes that’ll help you learn more about Leah. 

No. Of HeartsEvents
2She opens a conversation about how a piece of wood’s outer layers slowly shows its true nature.

You may respond to her in two ways:

• Compare it to people (It doesn’t affect your Friendship.)
• Say that you prefer its raw counterpart (no effect on Friendship.)
• Ask for a kiss (note: she’ll kick you out of her house by doing this and get deducted by 100 points. It also comes with consequences such as missing her 8-Heart Event.)

Moreover, Leah admits that being an artist makes it hard to earn money. You may suggest for her to:

• Open an art show in town.
• Sell her art online.

She’ll think about either of the two and thank you for making a suggestion.
4You’ll find her arguing with her ex over the phone. Upon seeing you, she’d tell you her reason for leaving the city and ask if it was selfish for her to go and pursue her passion. You may respond in five ways:

• Tell her no and that it’s supposed to happen.
• Say no and call her ex an idiot.
• Say it was better if she stayed in the city (-20 points.)
• Admit that it was a little selfish (-20 points.)
• Agree that she’s selfish but also says it’s natural to take care of herself first (-20 points.)

After this scene, she’ll also inform you that she’s considering saving up for a computer or the art event. It depends on what you suggested during the two hearts event.
6 (part 1)You’ll receive a gift from Leah on any day except rainy days, around 6 AM to 11:30 AM. It’s a sculpture she named “What I feel about (your name).”
6 (part 2)In this event, you’ll find her at Cindersap Forest. She tries to get a fruit from a tree but fails. You helped her by raising her. She then tells you that even if her art fails, she knows that you’ll be there for her.
8Reaching this level of Friendship triggers two varying scenarios depending on what you choose in the Two-Hearts Event.

• Art Show
Leah would invite you to her art show any day from 6 AM to 8 AM except in Winter. The show happens from 3 PM to 5 PM in Pelican Town any day. During the event, she’ll receive compliments from the villagers. She also introduced her artwork to them and thanked you for supporting her.

Interestingly, her ex also shows up before the cutscene ends.

• Art Website
She’ll tell you that she got a laptop set up and someone named “Mr. K” keeps buying her art. She assumed that it was just a rich guy who loved her art. She also claims that she can earn enough money with her full-time job related to art.
10At this event, entering Cindersap Forest on 11:00 AM to 4 PM on any day except Winter triggers a picnic cutscene with Leah. It was a surprise for you!
However, Kel, her ex, pops out of the bushes making Leah feel annoyed. Kel then confesses that he/she has been purchasing her art since he/she found Leah’s website.

If you chose the art show, her ex would say he/she traveled from Zuzu City to see her event. Nonetheless, the bottom line is that he/she wants her back.
This leaves you with two options: Punch Kel in the face or Reason with Him/Her.

Choosing the first option, Leah would tell you that it was a pretty violent move. But going with the second one results in her punching him/her instead.

Note: Kel’s gender depends on your character’s gender.
Group of 10-Hearts EventThis heart event happens if you give everyone a bouquet. It’s likely to get triggered if Haley/Alex’s the last one to receive it.

Spoiler: they’ll find out that you’ve been dating all of them. They’ll get mad and give you the cold shoulder for a week.

However, having a Rabbit’s Foot in your inventory prevents this from happening. If you’re lucky enough, gossip about Marnie and Mayor Lewis gets triggered instead.
14A cutscene gets triggered if you leave your farmhouse between 6:00 AM to 8:20 AM. Leah will ask you to meet her in the forest since she’ll teach you how to paint. She also notes that if the weather is bad, you’ll do it the next day instead.

The next day around 11:30 AM to 2:00 PM, you’ll have Marnie as your subject in the painting. You have three art-style choices:

• Classic Country Portrait.
• Colorful Retro Pop Art.
• Minimalist Modern.

After finishing Marnie’s portrait, Marnie tells you to keep your first painting and only takes Leah’s piece. This adds a new item to your inventory, “My First Painting.”

Additionally, this isn’t related to any heart events, but you may encounter a question from Leah that may increase or decrease your points with her. She’ll ask you why you became a farmer. You may answer this question in four ways:

  • Because you want to earn tons of money (-5 points.)
  • Because it’s more authentic compared to living in the big city (+5.)
  • You wanted to follow in your grandfather’s footsteps (+5.)
  • To escape your old life (+5.)

Marriage

Leah has a minimalistic taste, don’t you think?

If you’ve finally decided to marry Leah, she’ll have her own space in the farmhouse too. And behind the house, you’ll find a small workspace she uses to make her sculptures. She may occasionally give you random items depending on the weather and her activities.
