Introducing Erin

You’ve been reading her posts for a few weeks now, but you haven’t actually officially been introduced.   Let’s remedy that.  Here is a little more about Erin Lang-Norris who is pitching in here on studio ‘g’ to write about our favorite garden makeovers. I loved her post this morning about the shared side yard space with the green chairs…wouldn’t that be a great cost savings as well as fun social space? Makes me wish I had close neighbors…- Rochelle

I try not to take life too seriously and you can usually find me settling debates and things I don’t want to do with a friendly game of rock-paper-scissors. I’ve only lost a couple times so it’s pretty frequent that I use it to my advantage.

When I’m not trying to get out of cleaning the litter box or calling in the order for take-out, I like to create mixed-media art (you can check out my etsy site, yellowcanoe), listen to music, stalk design and psychology blogs, go canoe-camping down the Wisconsin River, watch hockey, shop at thrift stores and write. I went to Harrington College of Design for a brief stint before moving away from Chicago, and after moving I was still convinced that I was supposed to be a designer. That lasted for about 9 years, and more recently I’ve become interested in the idea of going to school for something in the psychology field. But until the stars align, I’ll continue to work at a canoe and kayak shop, sell my art and write.

Of course, lately I’ve  started to feel that my life was lacking direction and reason, and while I do enjoy the stress-free lifestyle of not having a real “career”, it does start to get a bit dull after awhile. One of my dreams since I was a kid was to be a firefighter, so last spring I finally mustered up the courage to join my local Volunteer Fire Department. Going to that first meeting was pretty nerve wracking, but I’m so glad I did. I’ve met some really great people and it’s been a lot of fun. I’m kind of an adrenaline junkie and I enjoy physical labor, so I think it’s a good fit. Next on my life-goals list is to join a women’s hockey team…we’ll see how it goes.

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.
