Erin Lau is a Landscape Designer and avid sketcher. Erin considers landscape design from an artistic, architectural and ecological perspective. Bringing together her background in architecture, landscape architecture, illustration and gardening, Erin approaches each design with a unique eye for detail and deep understanding of the design process. She believes that the garden, however large or small, should be designed as a whole system, in which every part connects with one another. She has studied Permaculture and is a firm advocate of urban farming and edible gardens. Erin’s passion for design is part of a family tradition – her grandfather, father, and uncle are all architects. Though raised in San Diego, Erin now lives and works in Seattle and considers this beautiful city to be her hometown of choice.
