Originally from the Kapiti Coast, Jacqui's WILDHEART STUDIO was located overlooking the sand dunes of Paraparaumu Beach. Her clear colourful paintings are inspired from nature and the stunning coastal environment. Jacqui has a great love for the ocean and green spaces and believes that nature and its creatures are our first teachers.
Holding a Diploma in Fine Art, Jacqui has seen her work displayed in homes and exhibitions throughout the country.
Jacqui has a Diploma of Teaching, and has taught in Wellington and been involved in art projects and murals in schools on the Kapiti Coast.
After experiencing many wonderful summer holidays with her family, camping in Northland, East Cape and the Bay of Plenty, Jacqui is now living in Mount Maunganui.
Jacqui aims to continue to provide the unique Art Expression experience that was established on the Kapiti Coast at MOUNT WILDHEART.

"The girls have had a fantastic time with you,and I am so pleased that they have the opportunity to learn from someone who really knows their stuff.I used to think that art (and sport and music etc) were all down to talent,but I learned eventually that tools,techniques,experience and exposure were also fundamental to exploring your ability and to learning how to learn."

"Jacqui van den Berg oversaw the project working with the children on painting techniques. The mural depicted the local legend of Te Rau o te Rangi. A student involved in the project said it took a long time but Jacqui taught us lots of new skills like how to use the paint brush correctly and how to use different painting techniques."
