I have a degree in Landscape Architecture from The Ohio State University and am a Registered Landscape Architect and have been a long time member of the American Society of Landscape Architects. Now based near Asheville, North Carolina, during a career spanning over 30 years, I have created well over 300 private gardens in North Carolina, New Jersey, Connecticut, New York, Massachusetts, Ohio, California, Florida, West Virginia and Virginia .

Extensive botanical knowledge and a design background in both Landscape Architecture and Interior Design, enable me to integrate house and garden thoughtfully into the larger landscape. In addition, my European roots as well as extensive travels to many parts of the world have given me exposure to diverse architectures, gardens and natural landscapes.

My work has been published in a variety of magazines and books. Over the last 30 years I have given programs to horticultural societies and garden clubs as well as a course on landscape architecture to professional garden designers.
