Leaf is currently coordinator of Design at Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts, where she has led the Design program since 2007.

A love of, and qualifications in, literature and visual arts led Leaf to scenery and costume design for live performance. Initially working as a scenic artist and props maker locally and in the UK, Leaf freelanced in design, whilst also lecturing sessionally in Technical Drawing, General Drawing and Scenic Painting at WAAPA. Leaf has also held several solo exhibitions.
