  4. I love this sweet portrayal of baby Jesus. I was wondering if you would allow me to use this artwork on a Christian nonprofit organization Christmas letter? Each year, I try to find a different artistic expression of Christ’s birth for the letter. I deeply appreciate your consideration. Thank you.


    1. Thanks Karen for the request. I would be happy to grant you permission if you would let me know what nonprofit this would be used for?


  5. Hi! Would you mind if we used this image as a small thumbnail in our Christmas church newsletter?

  6. Sorry, I would like to ask for sure that Do you allow me to use this picture for both of booklet cover and invitation card?

  7. This is a lovely and evocative image for Christmas. Would it be possible for our church to use it on our Christmas carol service and crib service sheets? It is so nice to come across something new and original.

    With thanks for your consideration

  9. Hi,

    Your artwork is riveting. I edit a newsletter that goes to about 300 missionaries working overseas. Would it be possible to use “Nativity Nap Time” in the Christmas letter? Thanks for your consideration. Also, thanks for the time you devote to your art.

  10. I was combing the web to find an image to post as my Facebook profile to help us keep our minds on the true meaning of Christmas, and found this drawing of yours. It is just what I was looking for, but wasn’t sure how you’d feel about my using it for that purpose. I would definitely include your website with it.

    If you’d rather I didn’t use it this way, I totally understand!!


  11. I love your artwork and plan to show your blog to my students at school. Thank you for the reminder of what is important during this season….Christ!

  12. Stushie ~ We just discovered your artwork – it’s wonderful and creative! I am a pastor in the mid-west and my wife and I were looking for artwork to use for our Christmas card to our congregation. “O Holy Night” would be perfect for this year. We will only use this with your permission. Thank you!

    1. Tom, I am glad you enjoy the artwork. Please feel free to use it for your card. God bless your ministry.

    I’m with the Cookeville History Museum in Cookeville, Tennessee. We’re getting ready to show a collection of nativities from around the world starting in November and would love to use this piece in promotional work. We’re a free, non-profit museum, and we all fell in love with this image as soon as we saw it. Of course we will print were the image came from and only use it with your permission.

    Thank you so much,
