Leora was born in Zimbabwe to artist-activist parents and her early years were divided between their wildness and the wild and magical ecology of the land.

She carved out her first career, by this time in the UK, creating psychedelic environments for clubs and festivals allowing her to develope a broad and varied material fluency and from which she moved into a formal training and subsequent practice in architectural design.

Breaking to raise a child, she returned to her artistic practice with an interest in ceramics, studying ceramics and glass at the Royal College of Art where she developed her practice and has emerged as a noteable maker of collectible design pieces.
