Hi, I’m Deb, the author behind The Lovely Ferns.
I’m a designer who collaborates mainly with photographers designing websites, books and marketing pieces. On occasion, I get to work with other creative types, too. My background is in editorial design and I started my career as a Design Editor at The Globe and Mail (I love Toronto). Since then, I’ve worked at a few newspapers and magazines including this newspaper, this travel magazine and this travel magazine.
The Lovely Ferns is my newest space. I decided I would use this space to write more (practice!) and share some of my personal health journeys, experiences, creations, and lessons as I make my way through what feels like a massive transition. When I started this blog, I was starting classes at the Maryland University for Integrative Health.
But, plans change.
This Fall 2018, I will be a Master of Fine Arts candidate at the University of Miami where I will focus on interaction design and UX research to continue to hone my design skills and fill in some gaps. My goal is to be part of a team passionate about design and technology and how they can be used to help seniors and people with disabilities. You know, make a positive impact on the world for individuals and populations.
My home is in Upstate New York. I’m married to this amazing man and “mom” to a Blue Russian Tabby mix and a Beagle.
Please, say hello.
