Based in Worcestershire, artist Marie-Therese King was lucky enough to grow up with six siblings in a family of horticulturists, gardeners, bird watchers and keen walkers surrounded by orchards and countryside. No doubt this nature filled childhood has influenced Marie-Therese’s passion now, as an artist, to share this vision, combined with her love of the ancient Indonesian art-form of Batik.
Now living in an intentional community, shared costs in this communal living have enabled Marie-Therese to continue with her love of art as a career. A single parent and successful business woman, Marie-Therese has created her own business to share her love of art with children and communities, bringing images of the natural world she loves so much to life with the intensity of colour, shape and technique.
Marie-Therese has not only encouraged children to embrace the power of art and how to really appreciate their surrounding nature but is now keen to make sure the adults do not miss out on how to nurture these artistic skills whilst on an intimate holiday retreat. Now running a number of popular art & birdwatching holidays in Southern Portugal where European bee eaters and golden oriels have become some of the stars of the artworks. https://www.mariethereseking.uk/batik-workshops/batik-workshop-and-birdwatching-holiday/
For a chance to see these beautiful works, Marie-Therese will be exhibiting and hosting a workshop at the Barnsdale Gardens, the garden centre created by the talented late
Geoff Hamilton, one of the original members of Gardener’s World. The Summer show is at Barnsdale Gardens, Rutland, UK on 17th June – 2nd July https://barnsdalegardens.co.uk/july-events.html
