A native of Glasgow, Scotland, Ken was raised in the Pacific Northwest and has spent many seasons exploring the region’s mountains and waterways. Ken draws inspiration for his designs from the natural environment. In addition, garden and architectural styles and history have been a focus of his academic as well as professional background. These interests and experiences serve as a strong foundation to Ken’s design approach and his belief that architecture and garden design are both integral parts of a well-designed site.
Ken holds a bachelor’s degree in landscape architecture from the University of Washington and is a licensed landscape architect in the state of Washington. In addition to his professional practice, Ken has had an opportunity to teach design courses at the University of Washington and Edmonds Community College. Ken currently lives near the city of Langley on beautiful Whidbey Island with his wife and daughters.
