Born in Ottawa, studied Art History in Toronto and Horticulture in Ottawa. Was inspired in Victoria (the Japanese garden at Butchart Gardens) and New York (Wave Hill and the Conservatory Garden -- what else?!). Happy again in Ottawa with two soul-mates, man and dog. Helping to make gardens beautiful and designing new ones.
