Her designs function as events and have been featured among other places at the V&A Museum of Childhood and Regent's Royal Park. Having explored the aesthetics of horticulture and the practicalities of gardening, she has worked as horticultural consultant for the biggest garden centre in the UK and volunteered on garden projects around the world focusing on environmental approaches to landscape design and maintenance. She has been visiting Kew Botanical Gardens for the past 7 years and is happy to share and bring context of this magical space that houses the biggest collection of live wild species from around the world and beautiful architectural gems that reflect the history of the Industrial revolution, the growth of capital and the transformation of thought and practise into the Age of Reasons, through the Enlightenment and into contemporary efforts in conservation and genetic research. The story that Kew helps us unravel is one of identity and how Britain became a country of gardeners.
