Kathleen Irvine grew up in Southern California in the midst of her mother's rose and vegetable gardens.  Throughout her life she was drawn to the arts and nature.  She spent her childhood and teen-age years in a ballet studio. 

She attended Loyola-Marymount University where she received a degree in English Literature, with minors in Sociology and Fine Art.  Unable to leave her love of ballet behind, upon graduation she pursued a career in dance.  When the physical demands of dancing became too much, she returned to her first loves - roses and insects.

She received her certificate in Ornamental Horticulture and Landscape Design from Pierce College.  She has been designing landscapes since 1991.
