ABOUT

With every new project I  give wings to my passion for beauty and plants. I love to design custom-made gardens that can transform, not only a space, but my clientes lives.

 

I graduated as a Landscape Architect from Universidade Técnica de Lisboa on 2006. After 10 years working mainly in Portugal and Mozambique I decided to specialise as a Garden Designer on the prestigious London College of Garden Design

In Portugal, while working at PROAP studio, I highlight the collaboration on the project of ” Dr. António Agostinho Neto” Memorial in Luanda. 

In Mozambique I started as Country Manager of JDP – Paisagismo e Ambiente. Afterwards I worked at Santa Verde, Lda., a landscaping South African company also based in Mozambique. Among the design&build projects carried out, stands the "ACACIA ESTATE" of the American Embassy in Maputo.

 

Driven by a desire to experiment with an almost infinite plant pallet and diversity of materials, I stayed a few years in London working mainly on urban gardens,  expanding my experience and designing award winning gardens.
