About Us

John & Marge HeilmanThe Heilman pastel and oil boxes grew out of a need for efficient, easy to use, reliable systems for painting in studio, workshop or en plein air.

John’s gift of creativity in fine woodworking coupled with his love of precise engineering and tenacity for quality and good function has made the process of making art easier for artists of every level and discipline. As an artist working in studio, workshop and en-plein air, Marge experienced and took careful note of challenges encountered by herself and fellow artists. Via “wish lists”, feedback and trial in the field John’s art boxes surpass any product available in quality, endurance and functionality. It is an exciting journey bringing new products, shared ideas and tools that will give years of excellent service.

Sharing an appreciation for nature, life and making fine art and photography has brought many rewards. We meet great people, share wonderful experiences, find ways to enrich each other in our ventures. These experiences have brought about the wonderful Heilman® Pastel Boxes that are enjoyed all around the world.
