Fernlore is an independent, women-led, digital publication featuring original artwork and stories inspired by nature, plants and people.
A serendipitous passion project between friends Alanna Rossi and Jaclyn Simon, Fernlore was created in the spring of 2021. Alanna and Jaclyn met while volunteering at Bloedel Conservatory in Vancouver, BC. They quickly discovered a mutual interest in nature, art and writing.
Fernlore was created as a place to inspire creativity and to provide a space for imagination to flourish.
