Pencil Art

When you saw my title Pencil Art you probably thought of drawings made in pencil. But I'm fascinated by another type of pencil art: art made out of pencils.

I recently discovered photos of these pencil sculptures made by Jennifer Maestre. I'm inspired by her creativity, and I think you will be too!

Jennifer is a young artist from South Africa who attended university in Massachusetts. Her original inspiration for pencil art was sea urchins. Trained in glass work, Jennifer experimented with using first nails, then discovered pencils for making her art.

See some of Jennifer's pencil sculptures below, or visit her website to find out more about Jennifer Maestre's art and exhibitions:
