Claudia Sackett Hennum is a landscape designer with a background in art and horticulture. She received her MLA from the University of Washington in 2021 and previously received her BFA from Tufts University and the Museum School.
Before pursuing her MLA, Claudia worked as a farmer, gardener, landscaper, and floral designer. She is interested in the ways that plants are both culturally and ecologically situated, how places change and evolve over time, and the many types of labor that go into creating and maintaining planted spaces.
In the past, through work with garden volunteers and apprentices, Claudia has enjoyed introducing people to the plant world, as well as facilitating independent exploration and skill development.
