My goal as a Landscape Designer is to transform a space, whether intimate or vast, to create beauty by working with and teasing nature, to take the mind and eye on a journey which ultimately feeds the soul.
I have been a practicing landscape designer since 1998, working primarily in an area north of New York City including Westchester, Fairfield, Dutchess and Putnam Counties. Some of my clients are also in Manhattan, California, Maine and Italy.
My working with the landscape has evolved from a lifetime of work as an artist in various media – sculpture, product design and fashion. I have also written a book on contemporary porcelain and directed an arts program for the Kohler Company.
Working with gardens and landscapes has been a natural progression of my life’s work, fusing an array of diverse disciplines from my past.
I hold a BFA from Washington University in St. Louis, received a certificate in Landscape Design from the New York Botanical Garden, and have done graduate studies at Columbia University, NY. I have also been awarded several grants from the National Endowment for the Arts.
