Leora was born in Zimbabwe. Exposure to the extraordinary ecology of that land and to the complex values arising from the intersection of human cultures continues to influence her work.

She carved out her first career creating psychedelic environments for clubs and festivals during the 90s allowing her to develope a broad and varied material fluency from which she progressed to a formal training and subsequent practice in architectural design.

After taking a break from her practice to raise a family, she returned in 2019 with a new focus on ceramics, pursuing this at the Royal College of Art. Supported by the prestigious QEST scholarship to complete this MA and undertake further trainings, she emerged as a note-able maker of collectible design, winning the British Ceramics Bienalle ‘Fresh Talent’ award during the course of the M. A. and subsequently being featured in a number of craft publications. She has exhibited at prestigeous events, internationally such as PAD design and Design Miami and is represented by Gallery Fumi in London.
