Landscapes and Sculptural Walls

A fascination with form and beauty has led me on a journey from carving stone into sculptures, fountains and furniture, to designing the garden spaces they inhabit. This evolved into an awareness of the potential for a garden space to be experienced as a sculpture "in itself." Not merely as a visual object, but as a space to live in and move through. Garden elements such as plants, walls, paths, trellises, etc. can transcend their functional roles to become sculptural forms that participate in the overarching sculptural gestures of the space. In this way garden design is elevated to the level of "art" while remaining grounded in the needs and aspirations of outdoor living.
