Meer over Els Baekelandt

In her nature paintings, Els Baekelandt depicts the beauty of plants, flowers, landscapes and still lifes in all their simplicity with a quirky magical realist touch.

She usually works on paper, mounted on wooden painting panels, using watercolour, gouache, colored pencils and acrylic paint. The artwork is built up in fine layers of paint until the desired effect is achieved. Afterwards, a layer of wax is applied to protect the whole.

After studying applied arts at the Luca School of Arts in Ghent, Els Baekelandt has followed a diverse and international career from 1986 to 2020.

Her work has appeared in magazines such as Art & Métiers du Livre (Paris), Scriptores (Netherlands), Plumes (Paris), Kalligraphie-Zeitschrift (Germany), Création numérique (Paris), Ingham County Community News (USA), Bourgogne Magazine ( France), Estilográfica (Madrid, Spain).
