I am a graduate landscape architect based in the Edinburgh office.
I joined the TGP team after graduating from the MLA Landscape Architecture programme at the Edinburgh College of Art. My final year work explored a feminist approach to landscape design and received the Landscape Institute Scotland’s Best Student Prize and the Peter Daniels Prize for best skills in site analysis. In addition, I was awarded the ESALA Best Performing Student in Programme Prize for my work.
Prior to landscape architecture, I studied History of Art at the University of Cambridge and spent time working in the sustainability sector in a range of capacities, from sustainable food and farming policy to writing copy for business reports. Coming from a non-design background I bring an interdisciplinary perspective to TGP and my role within the company.
I aspire to designs that balance human and ecological needs, whilst finding solutions that are elegant in form and function. I am drawn to landscape architecture as a profession that brings together knowledge from a variety of fields – from sociology and history to ecology and economics – and has the capacity to respond to design challenges at a range of scales. Seeing in terms of interconnectivity and systems underpins much of my design work and I am interested in how landscape architecture mediates between the human and natural world.
Proud to be at TGP
With its small team and friendly atmosphere, TGP is a great place to start a landscape architecture career. An interesting range of projects has allowed me to gain experience in every aspect of design, from concept to delivery, working alongside an experienced team of designers.
