"My work 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 half way around the world."
After 17 successful years as a Critical Care Clinical Nurse Specialist in a fast-paced intensive care environment, Becci turned her energies to focus on the escalating conservation challenges she observed impacting people and wildlife.
"The more I witness over the years, the more I realize our future as human beings is tied to the fate of all life on earth."
Traveling across six continents, including 16 trips to the African Continent, and over 47 countries Becci began networking with conservation experts from around the world and participating in fieldwork.
Becci's desire to study her subjects in their natural world has led to adventurous travel to remote parts of the planet where she soon discovered the challenges faced by wildlife and people sharing their environment. An early journey to Rwanda searching for endangered Mountain Gorilla led to an interview by National Geographic Adventure Magazine as part of an issue on the world's top 25 adventure trips.
Inspired by her experiences, Becci supports conservationists around the globe through her Art, speaking engagements and active involvement in the field. Most recently she has been with Dr. Jane Goodall in both the Republic of Congo and Tanzania, Dr. Colleen Begg of Niassa Lion Project in Mozambique, and Dr. Greg Rasmussen of Painted Dog Research Trust in Zimbabwe.
Becci is a Member of the Board of Directors of the Jane Goodall Institute, a Signature Member of Artists for Conservation, a TEDx Speaker and helped film and produce the television documentary "As Close As You Dare - Africa" broadcast on PBS stations across the US.
