Pencils4artists began life in a small art shop in the beautiful town of Dartmouth. Owners Emilie & Alan Heard became increasingly aware that customers were finding it harder to find single colour and graphite pencils in 'bricks & mortar' art shops and so decided to try to gather a collection of the best drawing and sketching pencils available in one place where artists could browse types and brands of pencils and, most importantly, buy in singles.
As time has gone on they have been finding more suppliers from various parts of the world and increased their stock to cover around 6000 loose stock pencils, tins and collections and accessories.
The ethos here at P4A is simple, good stock, fast delivery and excellent customer service.
We always welcome your comments or requests for hard to find brands of pencil so please feel free to email us at
Often it is customer requests that lead us to new products and suppliers and if we can help, we will!
