Design work

My design work is tailored around the needs and aims of my clients, I create beautiful resilient systems that are a pleasure for us to interact with, easy to manage as well as being enjoyable for community projects, individuals and families.

My design work is focused on creating productive environments which require little maintenance and provide productive and supportive spaces for people, wildlife and the environment of the future.

I also teach permaculture design methods to individuals and groups to achieve their own designs.
