Angelica Norton is a principal designer and co-owner of Open Envelope Studio, a boutique residential landscape design/build firm based in Austin, TX. Born in Houston, she transplanted to central Texas for college where she earned a BA in Liberal Arts with a focus on creative writing (’04) and Master of Landscape Architecture (’07), both from The University of Texas at Austin. She collaborates with her husband and OES co-owner, Matt, and for the past 11+ years their team has specialized in modern outdoor living spaces and custom steel work. Through using native and regionally-adapted species, she provides low-maintenance and sustainable planting strategies for gardens meant to be experienced beyond merely as a vista or curb appeal. Angelica’s designs explore how to better the lives of her clients through intentional space-making in the landscape and the built environment. She is a member of the American Society of Landscape Architects.

Angelica inherited her green thumb from many generations on her mother’s side, which she's passing on to her daughters, Eloise and Ansley. Outside of designing landscapes, she's also a multi-media artist, writer, podcaster for Chatty Crafties, Testify performer, blogger, and novice sewist.  

co-founded OES in december 2011
