With a BA (Hons) in Fashion Design I worked for 10 years as a successful Womenswear designer in London. I have combined my passion for plants and design to re-train in Garden Design and now hold RHS and City & Guilds qualifications.
Nature, plants and gardens have been a constant source of joy and inspiration since growing up in Somerset, with memories of Bluebell-filled walks and long days of sunshine.
Garden Design enables us to influence our outdoor spaces so that they not only provide us with our perfect setting, but also consider the very important issues of sustainability, wildlife and the environment.
Gardens are sensory spaces. Natural fragrance, harmony, light, sound and texture influence mood and well-being. A carefully designed space will enhance the lives of the people who use it.
For the future
Our Gardens need to work harder than ever. They need to be sustainable and self-sufficient. Good design means considering plant origin, placement and care, creating wildlife habitats and low-maintenance schemes, where aesthetic and function are harmonious.
My design for a ‘Feel Good’ front garden was selected from hundreds of entries to be built at Hampton court Palace flower show 2016.
