From an early age, Celeste Toogood developed a love for the outdoors and all things green – which probably explains why she designed and built her own home on the edge of a provincial park. She is a graduate of Ryerson’s Landscape Design program and earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from NSCAD University. In all her work, Celeste incorporates an interesting mix of materials – including wood, metal and stone – with native plants to create a compelling composition of colour, pattern and texture.
