I am a landscape architect and garden designer. My professional journey started with a passion for plants and the effect they have on our senses, the habitats they create and the temporal dynamism and atmosphere they give places. Training first as a garden designer and then continuing my studies with an MA in Landscape Architecture, I was awarded an RHS Gold Medal in 2016 for a show garden I co-designed and built.
Since joining LDA Design’s London studio, I have been working on the planting design at Battersea Power Station, Wembley, the Lee Valley Ice Rink and Portsmouth University.
When I am not in the studio, you can find me working in my own garden, researching new planting combinations, running and walking the dog. I also make a mean cupcake.
The Harbour Arm in Folkestone. It gets you right out over the sea. It feels creative and alive with new uses, meanwhile places and it has retained the feel of its working past.
My office window at home looking into my front garden. It’s full of waving grasses, flowers, butterflies and bees. I never water at all, so it’s my testing ground with no free rides.
'Disability, Space, Architecture' by Dr Jos Boys. An important book that explores disability in spatial practice from a range of perspectives.
