Hi! My names is Laura Powell. Welcome to my personal page. I’ve designed it to showcase my skills and expertise accumulated over the year. I’ve also placed a contact form below and all my social links on my header so feel free to connect me. I’d love the opportunity to hear from you.

A Little Bit About Me…

I have a Post Graduate Degree in Landscape Architecture from UCLA as well as over 20 years experience in designing Interiors and an Advanced Certificate in Web & Graphic Design from Sessions Professional School of Design. Across the street from the building I lived in growing up in New York City was an Urban Park where I spent most of my playtime. My papa also hung out with his friends in what they called “The Sitting Area”. One day when I was about 5 years of age, I turned to see papa in his side of the park, wildly jumped and flailing his arms in the air with his fedora. To my surprise, he had caught a small blue parakeet in his hat. He took me by the hand and we walked to the local Woolworths on Main Street where he bought me a cage and food for a budgie and so my passion for birds began.

Through the years I have learned how to combine my knowledge of design with aviculture, plants and graphics to create exciting Environments for our small creatures.

 Laura’s Skills

Below is a breakdown of my skills.

Laura is Credited with a Post Graduate Degree in Landscape Architecture from UCLA. She has over 20 years experience in designing Interiors and an Advanced Certificate in Web & Graphic Design from Sessions Professional School of Design.

Laura is part bird and friend to all creatures. She studies and learns from first-hand observation and then augments that with formal training. Animal environments — what special adaptations are required? what provides focus and interest for any given species? how do animals rear their young? what measures can be implemented to give creatures life-full purpose? what family interactions are meaningful? Aviculture is her middle name.

She loves looking for the anomalies in landscape. She hunts out rare exotics that can be adapted to PlantScape (the art of interior landscape). She seeks sustainable solutions for the man-made environment. She savors the “mixed media” hardscape and the joyful interplay of plant material with man-made structure. She specializes in Vertical gardens, roof gardens and xeriscape and tropicals. She intermingles the life-force elements of earth, fire and water.

Laura is a master of the internet. She is skilled at developing intriguing websites and cross-pollinating pages so that inter-related subject matter can be organized and easily accessed. She has developed this mastery into an impressive tool for client-bound presentations and information packets.

Her designer’s eye is particularly keen when referencing color. She can view a painted wall in a client’s home or office and, unaided, take the memory of that wall’s color to the paint store and find its exact match. She is then able to build the most intriguing color schemes.
From a production standpoint, all of Laura’s work is done on a MacBook Pro laptop. She commands countless software programs to expatiate her design prowess.
Hobbies: Aviculture, Culinary Arts, Labradoodles, Dance, Film, Literature and a Rural Temperament. .
