Influenced by the American artist Edward Hopper, Ledia tends towards photorealism, addressing the urban themes of the capital where she lives, Tirana, or her childhood motives. She exhibited in several art galleries in Tirana, Paris, Berlin, Croatia, Skopje, USA, being in search of figurative artistic expressions with a social theme, from the life of youth and the noise of the life of the Capital. Her artistic practice includes a variety of media such as: photography, painting, installation, public interventions and illustration. She experiments and finds formal contemporary expressive ways.
