Her gardens have appeared in local, national and international publications as well as on national television. 2006 saw the publication of her first book ‘Quintessentially Oz – Australian Gardens in the New Millennium’. In 2012 Janine published her second book “Urban Sanctuary’ which displays 14 inspiring gardens and is a valuable reference for the design of small urban landscapes.

Janine is particularly well known for her unique, cutting edge designs for small gardens but she equally enjoys designing sophisticated outdoor spaces to marry with the era and architecture of any home.

Janine has travelled extensively and has always had an abiding interest in the built environment. She is a qualified horticulturalist, landscape designer and architectural draftsperson. She lives in Perth Western Australia, and works from her home, which is aptly ‘planted’ in her own lovely garden.
