I am a science communicator curious about the biodiverse planet we live in. Share in my passion for science storytelling through my portfolio of artwork and writing. From the Atacama Desert to the Amazon, Mount Everest to Madagascar, I have had the chance to explore diverse ecosystems and wildlife. My inspiration comes not only from being in nature but also visiting galleries, exhibitions and museums. I enjoy learning and have taught science in an array of settings from laboratories and museums to planetariums and flight simulators.

Since completing my Masters of Science Communication at Otago University, I have continued to craft stories for various publications, including, educational resources, presentations and web content. As a self-taught artist, I enjoy working with a range of traditional and digital media to produce paintings and illustrations. I aspire to create innovative and creative resources to further diversify learning experiences and to reach wider audiences.

Suggestions and comments are welcome. I can be contacted by email: beccajohn@gmail.com.
