Welcome to the website of Baukje Exler!

Thank you for visiting my website. I’m a Dutch artist living and working in middle of The Netherlands. I’m specialized in painting with oil pastels which is a unique technique resulting in colourful and picturesque art. Through the years I have developped my own style. Nature, the seasons, Texel (one of the islands in the north of The Netherlands) and the anthroposophy inspire me. Often parts of my work are associated with Steiner art of Waldorf art.

My mission is to share this unique technique with many other people. I do this by offering courses and workshops, sharing my art through social media and by selling my paintings. I also sell postcards and other art presents in my webshop (in Dutch). Should you be interested in buying or selling my cards outside The Netherlands please contact me.
