Hi, I’m Deb, the author behind The Lovely Ferns.
I’m a self-employed designer who collaborates mainly with photographers designing websites, books and marketing pieces. On occasion, I get to work with other creative types, too. I’ve been a designer (we go by many titles) since oh … 1998 when I started working as a Design Editor at The Globe and Mail. Since then, I’ve worked at a few newspapers and magazines including this newspaper, this travel magazine and this travel magazine.
I teach, speak and I’m writing a book. Phew.
The Lovely Ferns is my newest space in the grand digital world. I decided I would use this space to write more (practice!) and share my personal health journey, experiences, creations, and lessons as I make my way through what feels like a massive transition. You see, I’m in my mid-forties and start classes this Fall at Maryland University for Integrative Health.
So, maybe you are also a woman about my age who is thinking about or going through your own transformation. I’m not entirely sure how The Lovely Ferns will evolve but perhaps what I share will be helpful for you. Any journey toward health and well, managing it, is challenging. Let’s support and encourage each other, shall we?
Please, say hello.
