Eva’s Note

to You

 

A very warm welcoming hello to you,

My life started in a garden, being born in the Garden City of Toowoomba.  Later my family moved to the Moreton Bay region to live.  My childhood was spent visiting my family in the Lockyer valley and Toowoomba, family road trips in the outback of Australia and gardening.  I grew up in an art gallery with my mother’s paintings filling our walls like a tapestry.  She encouraged me as a child to paint, developing my creative flair from a very young age.  From my childhood I inherited a deep connection with gardens, natural landscapes, rural & regional communities and the arts.  This inspired me to study a Bachelor of Design in Landscape Architecture with minors in Urban Planning and Interior Design.

I built Porter Designs on a firm foundation of persistence and determination after graduating university without employment.  One of the drivers to success has been the ability to capture the heart and vision of my clients needs to design their beautiful and practical landscape.  With the outcome of a garden design that is full of imagination and creativity. 

Growing a business is like growing a field of sunflowers, the purpose of a field of sunflowers is to be harvested and give its nutrients to others.  Porter Designs leads in the landscape design industry with a servant action of giving back to communities.  My servant work is divided between project based involvement and donating my time to spend mentoring young people.  I am the chairperson of two committees in my local Chamber of Commerce; Commerce In Schools and Regional Partnership committee.  Apart from committee activities I donate my time in schools for their career days to encourage students into the design field and to become entrepreneurs.  In the broader community I encourage the disadvantaged youth at the Deception Bay Community Youth Program by asisting in their activities. 

I’m excited to one day meet you and get to know your story,

Eva Porter
