“I have a passion to create; be it building dens with my children in the woods, designing interior spaces to evoke a certain atmosphere or strumming my guitar making music. At the heart of what I do is creativity. As a child I would draw picture upon picture, perfecting the art of drawing my favourite fictional characters. At school I studied fine art, getting lost in the processes involved with creating my masterpiece. I love to create and always have done.
With a love for creativity, nature and being outdoors, I have run my own landscape construction business in Suffolk and Essex since 2010. Over the past 10 years I have designed and built many gardens of various styles and budgets and have been recognised nationally for my creative designs and space solutions. I am passionate about seeing a space transformed from tired and worn to sleek and contemporary, meeting the needs of a 21st-century lifestyle.
My passion to create has now led me to designing garden spaces full time. Designing a garden ushers in change and the development of a space, which in turn enhances the lives of the people who use it. Being outdoors is proven to be vital for wellbeing, and I personally find it to be the most crucial element to ensuring good mental and physical health. Through carefully considered and inspired design, my aim is to get people enjoying their outdoor spaces so that we can once again become more connected to the holistic beauty that nature has on offer for us all.”
