Cora was born in Geneva, Switzerland and grew up in the French and Swiss Alps until she moved to Austin, Texas in 2001 when she was 11 years old.
Since the age of 6, art was something she pursued in her free time and she did so by drawing and taking photographs. She moved to New York in 2009 and decided to go to community college to study photography, where she earned her associate's degree. Not satisfied with this line of work, Cora decided to move back to Austin to try another type of art form: tattooing.
She met her mentor Michael Norris in 2013 and started her apprenticeship under Michael in 2014. Her apprenticeship lasted a year and she has been a full-time tattooer since then. She has focused much of her time doing geometric tattoos and is excited to do more illustrative pieces with art nouveau and neo traditional influences.
