Caterina Howard is a London based, qualified garden designer and tutor. She offers bespoke, sensory driven, site specific designs which engage and elevate the user’s experience of their outdoor space. She achieves this through the use of contemporary design detailing, appropriate material choices, client communication and through harnessing the beauty of our nature and landscape without exploiting the needs of the planet.
Born in the UK and raised in her mothers native Colombia, Cat has always found inspiration in her imagination and surroundings. Nature, landscape, history, architecture and fashion inspire her to design rich, intuitive, multifaceted gardens and outdoor spaces.
Cat is currently a tutor at the prestigious Inchbald School of Design, where she also graduated with a Postgraduate Diploma in Garden Design. Cat was awarded the School Garden Design prize chosen by Marcus Barnett, and the Garden Design prize chosen by Juliet Roberts, editor of Gardens Illustrated.
Cat Howard’s previous career was as a freelance graphic designer and art director for Glamour, Vogue, GQ Style and GQ Magazine, where she was the Promotions Art Director for six years. Her first degree was an Art Foundation from Central St Martins, followed by a BA(hons) in Graphic Design at London College of Printing.
Cat is currently working on various projects in London and the UK, and is a pre-registered member of the Society of Garden Designers.
