Trainer - Ms. Katja Perrey

Katja Perrey comes to landscape design from an extensive background in the fine arts and horticulture, the perfect combination for creating smart, beautiful, ecological landscaping.

She received both a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Photography and a Masters degree in Fine Arts from the California Institute of the Arts. After exhibiting internationally and working as a commercial photographer, an emerging passion for urban landscapes compelled her to direct her talents towards landscape design and horticulture.

While receiving a horticulture degree from UCLA and earning a ‘Master Gardener’ certificate from UC Davis, Katja worked in all areas of landscape installation and maintenance. She gained hands-on experience as a crewmember, foreman, then Division Supervisor for a number of high-end landscape maintenance companies. Prior to starting her own company, Katja honed her design skills at several prominent landscape design firms, including Jay Griffith Landscape, the well-known design firm that designed gardens for such luminaries as Arnold Schwarzenegger and Brad Pitt.

Katja is an active member of the International Society of Horticulture, and the Romania Green Building Council for whom she conducts Sustainable Landscape Design workshops for architects and individuals. She also lectures on creativity at the Universitatea Nationala de Arte, Bucharest.

Besides winning multiple grants for public garden design projects, Katja served as the Director of an innovative and award-winning program for the City of Santa Monica’s Sustainable Programs division.
