I work with homeowners to create personalised designs for courtyards, urban and rural gardens, for your new garden or existing garden revamp.
My garden designs are uniquely conceived for your locale to grow healthily and work practically; a garden to be lived in and that will nurture you as
you nurture it.
I bring awareness of the changing climate which will open up both opportunities and challenges for plant selection. As well as looking beautiful, your garden can increase liveability as it enhances both your indoor and outdoor living environments.
My designs take into account your lifestyle and garden-care requirements as well as each location's unique conditions. Together we will create a garden that will reap rewards from your investment and bring you pleasure now and well into the future.
My passion for gardens and the way they can transform our lives and communities started at an early age. Initial studies at Burnley Horticultural College were overtaken for a while by my career as an artist. At the same time, I continued my growth in horticulture creating rural, suburban and courtyard gardens, and planting designs for the clients of High Street Nursery, Armadale.
I conceived the installation Swan Folly Revival at the Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show. I have exhibited at significant contemporary art spaces, my art is represented in a state collection, and I designed and managed exhibitions including for the Immigration Museum, Museum Victoria.
Now, these passions come together as I design your garden and present you with a watercolour painted garden plan for you to keep.
I creatively adapt existing elements and relish the challenge to meet your needs within the scope of your space and the resources you wish to invest to install and then maintain the growth and development of your garden over time.
