THIS IS MY LIFE'S GREAT PASSION. IT BRINGS TOGETHER WHAT I LOVE MOST :
ART, NATURE AND CREATING A BEAUTIFUL SENSE OF SANCTUARY IN THIS WORLD.
I come to this work from a Fine Art background. I started out as a painter, but kept getting restless
in my studio and wandering out into my garden, so I realized that I really wanted to work in full 3D in all
the elements of nature. That was about 20 years ago and I haven’t really looked back since.
My clients were impressed with my artistic approach to landscaping, so my practice grew by word of mouth.
I love working with people to come up with artistic solutions that will transform their personal spaces into
places that will inspire them and enrich their day to day lives. I supplemented my professional training with
courses from George Washington University Landscape Design program but my “in the trenches” experience
working as a free lance designer in the Landscape 'Design and Build' trade has been invaluable training for
me. It also has brought out in me the kind of seasoned toughness, flexibility and tenacity that it takes to
maintain a clear artistic vision and push for the highest quality in craftsmanship throughout the installation
that it takes to achieve it.
AND THANKFULLY, OVER THE YEARS, I HAVE BEEN ABLE TO ASSEMBLE A WONDERFUL TEAM
OF ARTISAN LEVEL CONTRACTORS WHO ARE TRUE KINDRED SPIRITS SO I LOVE WORKING WITH
THEM TO BRING MY DESIGNS TO LIFE.
