Vanessa spent over 20 years as a commercial interior designer and then turned her global design experience inside–out into landscape design. She taught design at Maryhurst University and has gardened for over 40 years. Today, after more than 30 years as a designer, Vanessa is an award-winning, eco-conscious, garden designer, the author of "Understanding Garden Design", and the owner of Seasons Garden Design LLC.

Vanessa is a member of the international board of directors for the Association for Professional Landscape Designers and the newly formed Advisory Board of Garden Design Magazine. Vanessa is writing another Timber Press book on garden furnishings, while she is still weeding in her own garden, Dragonfly Hollow.
