Bay of Plenty Garden and Art Festival


Jacqui Van den Berg

Jacqui’s purpose-built MountWildheart Studio is nestled between a serene tropical island-vibe pergola courtyard and a flourishing vegetable garden adorned with Frangipani, Hibiscus, Alstroemeria, and Renga Renga, enhancing the tropical ambiance. Her paintings burst with nature’s life, showcasing multi-layered vibrant colors and energy-driven brushwork. MountWildheart Studio provides a unique space for private and group art exploration, offering a creative sanctuary surrounded by the beauty of nature.

Jacqui is an art educator and founder of MOUNT WILDHEART.
