Garden Designer

What was your background before KLC?
I was an interior designer working on high end private residential properties, including renovations and new builds.

Why did you want to study Garden design?
I became interested in the correlation between inside and out and how the two connected together to become one liveable space.

What are your design interests
I have always loved textures, colours and patterns and am interested in all arts, including photography, architecture, painting, sculpture and of course design.

What do your college peers say about you?

  • Strong, bold confident designs in both visualisation and drawing. Great attention to detail is shown in the use of textures, layers, colours and combinations of materials.
  • Accomplished computer skills in VW, Photoshop and Indesign.
  • Clear verbal and written communication, with outstanding organisation and leadership skills.
  • Knows how to celebrate the end of a hard day!

Which are your favourite gardens?
Waterperry Gardens was my favourite visit this year. It is a magical place where you are surrounded by beautiful trees, shrubs and flowers, classical borders, modern planting, with secret corners and long vistas. They also have a hidden garden in a ‘silent space’ that was so peaceful and tranquil, where you can sit and reflect without being disturbed by the human voice.
