Crayons are normally one of the first form of art tools that a child is exposed to. For those not not familiar with crayons; they are normally made out of wax, easy to work with, not messy, blunt (other than being stuck up noses, they are rather harmless), non-toxic, very inexpensive, and available in a very wide range of color choices.

Artists generally stay away from crayons, as they seem very “childish” to use, plus they wear down to a blunt smudgy tip very quickly. Somehow these artists below have found a way to not only make crayons work for them, but work well enough to seem as if they were done using paint, or pencils, or anything BUT crayons. Enjoy!

Don Marco

Before retirement, Don started developing a technique to create fine art using Crayola Crayons. Shortly after retiring he published his first print. Living in Southern California, his work was in demand including commissions from Burt Reynolds and a one-man show at his Dinner Theater in Florida.

Jeffrey Robery

Jeffrey combines the nostalgia of our childhood crayon art experiences with his trademark signature series of Crayon Collectibles to serve as an ideal representation of what makes his unique art so appealing to a wide demographic– from fine art collectors to novice buyers. And his latest series of surf and beach images have the power to transport us, if only just a moment, directly to paradise like a breath of fresh air.

Kristina Nelson

Working with Crayola crayons, Kristina Nelson creates fine artwork portraying wildlife, portraits, places and objects in the contemporary realism genre. With a degree from the Minneapolis College of Art & Design, she taught art and English in Guadalajara, Mexico in 2006 to Mexican elementary children. This venture left her with few resources to pursue her own art interests, but she had ready access to most everyone’s first art instrument – the crayon.
