"My art is a reflection of my fascination
with nature and all things wild. I seek
the wild around me whether it's in my own
back yard or around the world."

The Adventures

Specializing in Wildlife and Tribal Portrait Art, Becci's desire to study her subjects in their natural world has lead to adventurous travel across 6 continents and over 43 countries around the world including Antarctica, The Amazon, China, India, Nepal, Thailand, Borneo, Tanzania, Botswana, Zimbabwe, The Congo and Namibia among many others.

One of Becci's journeys was to Rwanda in search of endangered Mountain Gorilla - the same area where Dian Fossey of Gorillas in the Mist did her research. Becci and her husband were some of the early foreigners to venture back into Rwanda following the genocide. Her experience tracking rare Mountain Gorilla led to an interview by National Geographic Adventure Magazine as part of an issue on the world's top 25 adventure trips. Sharing her extraordinary experiences directly, Becci subsequently led a group on Safari to Botswana.

Wanting to live and work as close to nature as possible, Becci's home studio in Western Washington has been designated by the National Wildlife Federation as a Certified Backyard Wildlife Habitat.

The Art


As an Artist, Becci’s explorations provide a wealth of knowledge and inspiration for her work. Her dramatic art images are created with pen & ink. Favoring a technique called Pointillism, her Originals involve creating an image on paper literally dot by dot. The details require thousands of points, laid in one dot at a time, and take weeks to complete. Her subjects include not only wildlife, but tribal cultures including the Maasai and San Bushmen from Africa.
 
Gallery Shows
Becci participates in gallery exhibits, juried shows and expositions and her work hangs in private and corporate collections. Her current Events can be seen on News & Events. Becci provides free consultations for those interested in a custom piece of Original Art.
