Our New Season Starts March 23rd 2022
Henry Berkeley and the Gardens Team would like to thank all of our wonderful customers for their kind support during our 2021 season.

We are delighted to announce the appointment of Nicola Currie as our Artist in Residence here at Spetchley.

The Gardens are an artist’s haven showcasing its character, light, and theatre, and providing an abundance of creative opportunity - from beautiful landscapes to botanical gems – not forgetting the wonderful wildlife.

Henry Berkeley is especially excited, as Nicola’s appointment comes at a time of great change as his own evolution of the Gardens starts. This follows on from his father, John Berkeley and the Garden’s great originator Rose Berkeley and her sister Ellen Wilmott (the recipient of the first Victoria Medal of Honour awarded by the Royal Horticultural Society in 1897).

Information on Nicola Currie
Nicola is an oil painter specialising in still life and botanical art. She studied Fine Art at Worcester University and has exhibited widely in the UK. For 15 years Nicola combined her art practice with teaching and was the part time Head of Art at New College Worcester. Since September 2020 she has worked full time as an artist.

Quote from Nicola
“My art is inspired by the colours of the natural world. I am grateful to Henry Berkeley for the opportunity to explore the life of the gardens through the year, and I look forward to sharing my paintings with Spetchley’s many visitors.”

The first Exhibition of Spetchley Inspired Art by Nicola was a great success. Thank you to all of our visitors who supported the exhibition, by visiting and perhaps purchasing, we really enjoyed having Nicola and her wonderful paintings at Spetchley.For the latest news and more on Nicola's work visit Website

Paso Paradiso is the name of Nicola’s latest oil painting. She writes: ’The Birds of Paradise flowers (Strelitzia) must be one of the most dramatic colour combinations in the plant kingdom. I wanted to recreate this sense of movement and dramatic colour. The painting is 30x20 inches/76.2x50.8cm and is painted on linen. It is for sale. Do contact her directly’
