A London based garden designer, I trained in horticulture, garden design and landscaping at Capel Manor College and have worked on projects ranging from town gardens and courtyards to rural planting schemes and community gardens.
I see myself essentially as a garden maker and my love of plants and good design motivates me to help others achieve the best they can from their outdoor spaces. From an early age I was inspired by my father who was also a keen gardener. I went on to study painting and follow careers in fashion and teaching, but gardening has always been my abiding pleasure and interest, so a career in garden design was a natural progression for me.
I enjoy working closely with clients and getting to know them well, so that I can use my experience, plant knowledge and eye for shape and colour to create the gardens that they want rather than impose my own ideas. My philosophy is based on creating stylish but practical gardens that are in tune with nature and their surroundings and I believe strong design and thoughtful planting are key to this process. I can offer advice, planting plans or a complete design service. My aim is to make gardens that look good all year round, whatever the style; gardens that will continue to bring joy long into the future.
