Deb leads the Brisbane studio with Katherine English where she uses her extensive experience in the field of landscape architecture in both the public and private sectors.

Deb’s creative approach to landscape architecture is constant throughout the entire process, from the generation of design concepts, through to the evolution of living landscapes. She creates and thrives in collaborative design settings and is passionate about ensuring sustainable outcomes for the health and well-being of the community.

With over 25 years’ experience in landscape architecture, Deb has worked consistently on a vast range of interesting projects of varying sizes and scales; from public realm opportunities surrounding major infrastructure projects in Brisbane, to master planning community hospitals in suburban Melbourne.

Deb’s broad knowledge and practical experience is demonstrated not only in the body of design work, but also through her strong commitment to knowledge and education working as a Lecturer and Tutor at QUT and as Jury Chair for AILA’s Queensland chapter awards. All these experiences have shaped the way she responds to design issues, with integrity and critical thinking.
