Our Team


A native of Georgia, Holly moved to Charleston in the fall of 1999, after completing a Bachelor of Landscape Architecture at the University of Georgia. She began her professional career at a landscape architectural firm in Charleston where she gained invaluable experience in master planning, site design, planting design, and construction observation on a wide variety of project types. She excelled in project management and was promoted to Team Leader. Along with her husband and partner, Holly founded REMARK in fall of 2007 as a Landscape Architectural Studio committed to quality design and client service, with an emphasis on sustainable design. Throughout her career she has held a strong commitment to stewardship of the land and a desire to create places where people can thrive. She and her husband collaborate on mixed media sculpture and installation art, and have had the opportunity to show work at Piccolo Spoleto in 2010, 2011 and 2012.  She is inspired by the natural world we inhabit and the beauty that surrounds us.


J.R. was raised in rural north east Ohio where the rolling meadows and woods, cultivated fields, and industrialized urban areas have influenced his understanding and appreciation of the natural and built environments. After leaving Ohio in 1992, he served his country in the United States Air Force. He was stationed in Charleston, SC where he fell in love with the gardens of the Lowcountry and realized his calling to Landscape Architecture. After completing a Bachelor of Landscape Architecture at the University of Georgia, J.R. moved back to Charleston. His professional background includes working for a small design firm focused on sustainable design for high end residential projects, public and private projects at a multi-discipline Engineering/ Landscape Architecture firm, and as a project manager for a local Landscape Architecture firm. He gained invaluable experience while working in such diverse environments, including site planning, master planning, native planting design, construction documents, and construction observation on a wide range of projects.  Along with his wife and partner, J.R.  founded REMARK in fall of 2007 as a Landscape Architectural Studio focused on sustainable design by collaborating closely with clients, architects, engineers, and contractors to achieve successful design solutions for their projects.
