Sylvia Dekker

Fresh air, wild places and the life they contain—from the smallest wonder to the biggest detail—are the heartbeat of Sylvia Dekker’s pen, lens and life. Nature is her favourite place to wander and experience, sleeping bag on back. This extends to daily life where she is a beekeeper, freelance writer and wife to an outdoor paramedic.
