Sally is a Landscape Architect and an Associate Partner with Gillespies, one of the foremost landscape and urban design practices in the UK. She has strong design skills and a wide range of experience in designing external environments from children’s hospitals to schools and public parks. She has worked on a wide range of projects throughout the world, developing vibrant and responsive environments which enrich people’s lives and bring them in touch with the natural environment. She excels in communicating those ideas in an easily understandable way, visualising concepts and communicating ideas effectively.
Sally has led workshops which engage all members of the community, in the design process and lead those people to take ownership of and interest in those spaces.
Sally is a practising artist in illustration and ceramics, the latter often based on an interpretation of natural forms, although not yet at the cellular level. She also leads a judging panel selecting amazing photographic images from research projects at the University of Manchester for the biannual Faculty of Life Sciences Carl Zeiss Gallery.
