Having always spent a lot of time outdoors, walking, sitting and just being on the land, I often find myself noticing the interplay between natural and man-made environments. Sometimes this seems like a wonderful symbiosis, often it seems clumsy and ill thought out. This is what drew me to work with landscape architects, the question of how we manage and design our landscapes in a harmonic way that respects the billions of years of refinement that came before our intervention. Roundfield value this question too, as well as being acutely conscious of current issues of resilience and environmental remediation.
I was able to fit easily into the role of landscape technician, having an academic background in the arts and specifically digital design. My specialisms in Adobe Creative Suite and 3D design have proved useful for visualisations.
My experience on the land includes volunteering at the Sir Harold Hillier Arboretum, managing three care home gardens and living and working with land based projects and communities. I also recently completed a Permaculture Design Course.
Many of my interests relate to landscape, for example growing food, foraging, bushcraft, rewilding and eco-psychology to name a few.
