Margaret grew up in Claremont, California, a small college town in Southern California with a rich history of art, landscape and mid-century modern design. Growing up, she loved hanging out in downtown Claremont, wandering the gardens at the Claremont Colleges with her friends, or cooking with her family at her aunt and uncle’s house – a former farmhouse and citrus orchard nestled at the base of Mt. Baldy. Before beginning her career in landscape architecture, she was an elementary school teacher for four years and is also a ceramicist in her spare time.
