Being a garden designer combines a long-standing interest in plants and the environment, with a successful 25-year career working as a designer and art director in both Australia and the UK.
Having grown up in Australia, I spent much of my time outdoors where my love of space, light and colour was formed. This, combined with my interest in architecture and urban spaces, meant that garden design was always going to be a logical next step in my career, as it combines everything I feel passionate about.
I gained my garden design qualification at the renowned Capel Manor College in Regent’s Park. As a prize-winning student, my time there provided me with an excellent understanding of horticulture, plants and hard landscaping.
I now combine this knowledge, my love of the natural world, and a wealth of design and project management expertise to bring a creative, yet practical approach to creating beautiful, functional outdoor spaces.
