I am an educator, writer and artist curious about the biodiverse planet we live in. Share in my passion for the environment through my portfolio of artwork and writing. As a self-taught artist, I enjoy working with a range of media to produce various photographs, paintings and illustrations. As a writer I enjoy crafting stories for a range of publications, including educational content and scripts. With my passion for adventure travel and science storytelling, my blog explores the Earth as a dangerous beauty through vast and varied landscapes. 

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 setings from laboratories and museum galleries to planetariums and flight simulators. Since completing my Masters of Science Communication at Otago University, I have designed and coordinated programmes at Victoria University of Wellington and delivered tours and workshops at Museums Wellington. I aspire to educate and entertain about our planet through designing educational programmes and stories. 

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