As a Landscape Architect, working within a thinking environment plays an important role in helping me to understand my connection to the living landscape and the best way to be of service. I strive to create a harmony with a landscape’s past influences, patterns and the roles that have shaped it to the present day and how those elements will affect the role it will play in the future.
I also give time to researching into the ancient wisdoms of how we used to understand, view and work with the land and the re-emerging belief in how design can help enhance its therapeutic qualities. My particular interest is to explore the works of Francis Bacon, understanding his legacy and the learning that exists from his life and words. Writing and talking about these philosophies and truths, that arose from his work with the landscape, can today shape our own landscape connection and wellbeing.
