I teach budding designers about the beautiful world of garden design and landscape graphics in a fun and simple way.
I’m Lisa Nunamaker, a garden design educator, writer, illustrator and speaker. After ten years of practicing as a landscape architect I realized that even though I adored designing, I loved inspiring others to design even more.
That's when PAPER GARDEN WORKSHOP was born. The word PAPER evolved from the idea of how we design and plan our gardens on paper first (even when I create digital drawings, I always begin with paper for initial concepts). The word WORKSHOP connects to the idea of practicing the concepts of design and graphics. The words together, PAPER GARDEN WORKSHOP creates a spirited place to learn garden design.
