After a first degree in Fine Art, I completed my Masters degree in Landscape Architecture in 2009, and since then, have worked in design practices in London, Sydney and Bahrain, designing both public landscapes and private gardens.
Setting up my own design practice in 2018 I hope to create beautiful, timeless gardens. The possibilities in every garden are different and I believe that, by designing in response to the client, the architecture and the surrounding landscape, a garden can start to have its own unique character.
I also paint and carve stone, and by combining elements of these practices with my love of plants, my approach to design is holistic, creating naturalistic, flowing schemes, but underpinned by a rigorous core of architectural planting and hard materials.
I have designed and seen to completion more than thirty gardens and in June 2015 I won a Gold medal and Best Summer Garden at RHS Hampton Court Flower Show for the garden Queen Elizabeth Foundation: A Different Point of View.
I am a visiting tutor in planting design at Sheffield University.
