Jeffrey Bale is an Oregon native residing in the beautiful city of Portland. After graduating with a degree in Landscape Architecture from the University of Oregon, he worked in an office for 20 minutes before running out the door and beginning a career designing and building gardens on his own. It was an early trip to Spain and Portugal that introduced him to the art of mosaic. On returning home, he taught himself how to build his own pebble and tile mosaics and frequently uses them to embellish is garden designs. He has a profound appreciation for the natural world, so the gardens he builds are complimentary to the natural environments surrounding them, while at the same time being places to immerse oneself in a setting of inspiring and meaningful beauty. $5 members/$15 non-members.
