Garden design Bristol, Somerset & London
I studied at Garden Design School in Bristol for a Diploma in Garden Design and Landscaping, graduating with distinction. In previous years I have also studied part-time courses in horticultural propagation and organic gardening.
Hawkmoth is a career change for me; I previously enjoyed two decades as a producer and project director in creative agencies, and as a volunteer trainer/facilitator for an NGO.
I've had a lifelong fascination for insects. Hawkmoth Garden Design is named for an elephant hawk moth caterpillar I narrowly avoided stepping on a few days before I began my diploma. Close encounters with nature always feel like a gift, especially creatures this extraordinary. It set me thinking that if I could help create gardens that not only bring happiness to people but also provide habitat for hawk moths, then I will have done my job well.
