About John

Magpie Blah! Blah! is a Canberra-based business selling greeting cards that are based on the distinctive art of John Beckhouse.

John Beckhouse is a talented artist who also loves tenpin bowling, collecting lots of things, looking at nature, watching any sort of footy and cheering Australia on to win at any sporting event! He also enjoys family celebrations for birthdays and other special occasions.

John lives with autism as well as a severe hearing impairment, so he views the world very differently to most people. Together these disabilities present significant challenges in communicating with most people.

Therefore for him art is an especially important form of self-expression. He draws simple yet delightful black-and-white images by hand, with messages that are warm, often amusing and which have an endearing and nostalgic appeal.
