About

I’m a Scottish pastor, ministering in East Tennessee. Art is a creative therapy for me. I started drawing for our church kids years ago and have expanded my art for worship services, church bulletins, newsletters, and even postcard marketing.

Lots of churches and administrators are constantly looking for unique bulletin artwork for Sunday services. Every week church secretaries are searching for lectionary or seasonal clip art for their worship bulletins or monthly newsletters. Christian educators and church teachers are always needing Bible coloring pages and other church art for children’s church, kids bulletins, or Sunday school classes. The Good News –  You’ll find what you’re needing here at Stushie art.

Click on the bulletin sections on my Art for Bulletin Covers page and you’ll find the unique images created by digital and crayon artist Stushie, whose church art is used by congregations all over the world, as well as appearing on the front covers of national and international religious magazines.

An annual subscription for unlimited use of Stushie’s artwork only costs $40. For less than $1 a week, your church can have access to hundreds of unique images for weekly bulletins, special occasions, Christian seasons, and even marketing! Check out the details on the right hand column. Payment can be made online via Paypal or with a check.

  1. Your work is fresh and Christ-centered. Thank God!

    Is your art available for use on other web sites (as thumbnails)? I realize that we’ve inadvertently copied some graphics without permission.

    1. Thank you, Dan. I appreciate your encouraging words. if you would like to use the art on a website, then please let me know where it will appear. I usually grant access to the pictures but I like to know how they will be used.

      I’m working on a Psalms project and have almost finished the first 50. if you would like to see them as a slide show, please go to the following link:

      I’d love to exhibit them – it’s an ongoing 3 year project.

  2. I am the editor for a magazine issued by 4 small rural congregations in Victoria, Australia. I would like to use “Like a rolling stone” on the front cover of “The Link” for April.
    I love the bright colours of your art work.

  3. Hello!
    I just had to let you know that I find your art beautiful, energetic yet peaceful all at the same time. I came across your work by chance. I am a primary school teacher working in a church school in the UK. I decided to teach the easter story through art, hoping to encourage the children to think of the emotion involved in a different way. I hope you don’t mind but I would like to use your art work as a starting point and discussion base for the children in my class. They are aged 10/11 years old and I know they would find your artwork wonderful too. If you have any suggestions or ‘tips’ for my children I’m sure they would be very excited to hear from an artist.
    Thank you so much for your time.

  4. Your work is wonderful, so colorful.

    I am wondering if Memorial Presbyterian Church could use one of your pieces on the cover of our order of worship for our sunrise service on Easter? I would like to use either “Easter Sun” or Like A Rolling Stone”. If permission could be granted it would be a blessing for our congregation.

    Thank you

  5. Your work is beautiful! May I use “Like a Rolling Stone” on the cover of my congregation Easter bulletin this week?

    I am pastor at St. John’s Lutheran, ELCA in Beaufort SC. We expect nearly 375 people this week!

    We just got a color copier and it would be a glorious first use of the machine on Easter Sunday.

    I have a question: what medium do you work in? Is this digitally generated?

    All the work is so vibrant and full of life. I love it!

    Peace,
    Pastor P. Shannon Mullen

  6. Hi, I am a worship Leader at a Methodist Churhc in Felixstowe, UK – also responsible for maintaining the Church web site. Your images are so lively and powerfull – I would greatly appreciate permission to use them on our web site from time to time (with a link to your site so that others can share in all your work) + to use them in worship (as patr of our Powerpoint slides.

    Hope this will be OK with you.

    Every blessing

  7. I found your work to be incredible. I am often looking for special pieces for our contemporary service(s) powerpoint. I would like to ask permission to use your works in this media?

  8. I LOVE YOUR ART!!! May Brookside Community Church UCC in Brookside Church use your Psalm 16 art on our bulletin cover this Sunday, August 2, 2009? Thanks, Ellen Witko, Association Minister

  9. Good evening! I know this is very short notice, but we would love to use your art of Breaking Bread on our worship bulletin this Sunday. If you would be willing to send me a ‘bio’ we would like to put that in the bulletin as well, and note your website. Thank you for considering this request! Blessings, Pastor Lorelei

  10. I work for two small urban churches in Minneapolis. We would like to use your art posted for Aug. 9 as a bulletin cover at Epworth UMC and as part of our worship Powerpoint for the New Congregation UMC (formerly Oakland/Asbury UMC). Thank you for sharing. Becky Coleman, secretary to both congregations

  11. Hi there! I am so taken with your art and wonder if you can email me – I would like to use one of your designs in a piece of beveled glass jewelry.

    (My website is under construction – I am transitioning from stained glass to beveled glass jewelry).

    I sure hope to hear from you!

    Thanks,
    Christy Marchand

  12. I like your art and was wondering if I could use some of it as a powerpoint for my Sunday morning worship at church. For example, I was thinking of using the praying hands during the call to prayer. Thanks!

  13. Hi, I really like your piece “Ethnic Art: Face to Face” and I was wondering if I can use your piece to do a critical research. If I can, i am hoping you can provide me some more information on the piece such on Medium and size and date. thank you

  14. Can I use your thanksgiving abstract from last year for the cover of our bulletin on Sunday (Village Presbyterian Church, Ladera Ranch, California)? And, perhaps, an advent image or two in the weeks ahead on the overhead projector? Will include a credit in the bulletin. We are a new church in south Orange County with about 100 in worship each Sunday. Thanks!

  15. I would like to use your Maundy Thursday bulletin cover on one of our bulletins at my church in NY. We will include a credit under the picture… Many thanks for your beautiful work.

  16. I stumbled upon your beautiful art work on the website, by accident. I particularly like the stained glass pieces. The colours are so vibrant. I come from Scotland and I am making an Easter card to give to our congregation with the Easter week services on it. I would like to ask you if I could use your Easter Sun image on the front of our little cards.

    myra

    1. Myra, thanks for your request. Please feel free to use the Easter artwork for your cards. I appreciate you asking. God bless you.

      John Stuart…:)

  17. May I use some of your beautiful artwork on my website, to accompany some of my contemporary liturgical writing? I’d especially like to use “Easter Sunrise” with one of my Passiontide pieces.

    I’d also be very glad to add your website link to my site – please check it out and see if it’s an association you’d welcome.

    Wishing you peace and power this passiontide
    – Bronwyn

    1. Hi Bronwyn, thank you for the request. Please feel free to use the artwork for your liturgical and meditational website. I’d also be delighted if you linked back to my art site. God bless you.

  18. I was looking for cover artwork for a Mass program for Wednesday of Holy Week and found your Psalm 41, “Even my friend… who shared my bread” art. May I please have permission to use it on the Mass program? It will be a one time use. I will include a credit under the picture.
    Thank you for your art. I also much admired your “Selling Salvation” work. I look forward to viewing your series on the Psalms.
    Thank you for sharihng your gift for God’s greater glory.

  19. Dear John,
    Greetings all the way from Malaysia!

    some how (I believe through God’s providence) 🙂 I stumbled upon your site (with some thanks to Google). And I plan (with your permission) to use the Last Seven Words of Jesus series interweaved with our Good Friday liturgy this week, is that ok?

    There’s so much here in this site which I foresee I would be interested to use in my sermons or other church related work. May ask ask permission in advance?

    Thank you so much for sharing your art (and heart) with the rest of us!

    plotting hope
    Sivin

    1. Thanks Sivin. Please feel free to use the art for your ministry and worship services. God bless you and thanks for asking.

  20. Wow! I stopped in at Javerde for lunch in west Knox–wow! Your art is gorgeous! Which is your church? I’d love to come if I am in Knoxville over a weekend. (we live 1.5hr north, just here for business today)
    Blessings,
    Kim

    1. I pastor Erin Presbyterian Church in Knoxville, Tennessee which is just off Kingston Pike across from Papermill Rd. I’m glad that you liked the artwork…:)

  21. Dear Sir,

    I just discovered your creative insights and was blessed by them. I’d like to ask permission to use your art but the exposure will surely be larger than just for my college classes (which I would do) and for experiences for my own congregation (I’m the senior/teaching pastor of a 1,400 member congregation in Massachusetts) but for our larger worldwide ministry.

    About five years ago we expanded a daily radio ministry (“Between the Lines” on 300 stations around the world each day) to “television for the internet.” We started “discover.now” as a 28.5 minute project each week that is available 24/7 at our website and has expanded to worldwide satellite television and some local cable access stations also. (I don’t get a penny for this ongoing project… it’s what I have to give for the Kingdom, too.)

    In order to keep people engaged beyond listening to me/watching me we incorporate great art. Usually we use art of public domain and the great masters, but we have, once in a while, discovered a contemporary artist that we’d like to utilize (and expand their “audience” with full credit.)

    I have a number of contemporary artists who have appreciated what we’re doing and if you’d like I’d send you the list of many of their names… I’d rather not make that list “public” for obvious reasons. Many of them have been so gracious.

    The ball’s in your court. We’d be honored to use your work. We absolutely won’t without your permission as we truly respect intellectual property rights to the best of our ability. Thank you for being faithful to your giftings!

    ‘Lord Bless’,

    Don Pate

  22. Hello! I love your work! Our pastor is doing an Advent Series entitled “Who is this Jesus”. We would like to create banner up front with these words and use your artwork of the baby Jesus laying in a manger. Could we have your permission?

    I could send you a jpeg of what the banner will look like.

    Thank you!
    Margie Broman

  23. I would like to use your Christ the King painting as a bulletin cover. I note that you have granted peermission for such use as long as you are notified. This drawing was most expressive of our Saviour King. Thank you,o.Coughlin

  24. I am a retired public school music teacher who has found a niche doing websites for several rural Missouri churches and am A-V person for my church. I would like to request permission to use your communion stained glass work for display during the actual communion only one Sunday a year. This would be at the marcelineumc.org church only and not on the internet. I will send the date to you, probably during the summer. Also, will credit on slide. I like to find different artwork for each monthly communion. Thank you for your consideration.

    1. James, thank you for your request. Please feel free to use any of the images on my website for worship.

      God bless you

      John Stuart

  25. Hello!
    I just wanted to say how beautiful and inspiring your art work is, I love your pictures! I am a primary school teacher teaching in Cambridge in the UK. I plan to teach the Easter story to my Y4 class of 8 year olds through art, hoping to encourage the children to think of the emotion and impact of the story on Christians in years gone by and on Christians today. I would so appreciate being able to show and use your pictures as a stimulus, as a basis for discussion etc. I trust this will be acceptable with you and if you are aware of any other such art material I would be most appreciative.
    In appreciation, may God continue to bless and inspire you in your work.
    Julie

  26. Hello,

    I was wondering if I could possibly use your beautiful ‘liberty sunrise’ picture for the Easter edition of our church magazine.

    Thanks

    Lucy Mills

    PS Do I attribute it to ‘Stushie’?

    1. Thanks Lucy for your comment and request. please feel free to use the image for your magazine. I would be obliged if you would put Stushie as artist and list the website address. Thank you and God bless your church.

  27. Hello!

    I would like to request permission to use one of your images (Psalm085) as a primary visual for a conference that Duke Divinity School will host in August 2011.

    Our annual Convocation on the Rural Church brings together rural United Methodist pastors from around NC for worship, plenary sessions, workshops, and conversation about the state of the rural church and how it can engage in even more vibrant ministry and mission. Here’s a link to last year’s event: http://bit.ly/g15zdv

    Thank you!

      John Stuart aka Stushie

  41. Good morning!

    Searching for art for our bulletin this week, I came across your Earth Day piece, featuring Psalm 24. Our church would love to use it Sunday on our bulletin cover as our message is on our stewardship of God’s creation. We print 180 bulletins for our UMC church in Chesterfield, Virginia (near Richmond). Could we have your permission to use the art? (Either way, I have been blessed by it since finding your site and work!)

    1. Thanks Katherine for your email. I appreciate your kind words. I’d be delighted to have your church use the drawing for your bulletin. The only requests that I make is that you credit me as the artist and list the art website in your bulletin. Thanks and God bless you.

      John Stuart aka Stushie

  42. Hello,

    I’ve written you a couple of emails before having read these comments. It appears that if permission is sought to use your art as a print on a church publication that you need only to know the manner in which it is used to grant permission. Rather than going forward with that assumption I am requesting permission to use “Pentecost Art-the Promise” picture on a postcard invitation we’re using to invite people to worship at Northminster Presbyterian Church of Springfield Ohio. I look forward to hearing back from you and hopefully getting to use your beautiful work.

    Take care,
    Dwight

  43. Grace be unto you, and peace!

    I am the office administrator at Elim Lutehran Church in Ogden, UT. We would like permission to use some of your beautiful images in our bulletin, monthly newsletter, and possibly on our web site. Credit will be given.

    Would this be OK? our email is office@elimlutheran.org.

    Thanks.

    God’s work. Our hands.

    –Dave Thomas

    1. Hi Dave, I’ve been in Pensacola, FL for the past few days. please feel free to use the images for your church. thanks for asking. God bless you. All that I ask is that you credit me as the artist and list the website (John Stuart – http://www.stushieart.com).

  44. John, I thank you for offering your God-given artistic talents to capture, worship, nature, and Scottish scenes too.
    I am asking for permission to use your “Bread and Wine” print for a worship bulletin this month, and possibly in the Powerpoint presentation for our upcoming contemporary Sunday evening worship service. We certainly will give you a credit note, and link to your prints page. Thank you for considering our request.

    God bless you deeply and richly.

    1. Greg, thanks for the courtesy of asking. Please feel free to use the images for your worship and other ministries of your church. God bless you.

  45. Dear John,

    Greetings from the Philippines!

    We are a non-government organization working on population and development. This year, we will be holding a second inter-faith conference on population and development which hopes to bring more than 50 inter-faith organizations to share their experiences to specific social development and population issues and appreciate the linkage between religion, population, and development issues.

    Regarding this, we are hoping that you will permit us to adopt your artwork, “Ethnic Art: Face to Face” in our invitation letter and signages. It best describes what we want to achieve in the conference. Thank you and hope to hear from you soon. God bless!

    Best regards,
    Pilar

    1. Hi Pilar, thank you for your request. I would be delighted to have the image used by your conference for such an important program in the Philippines. God bless you…:)

  47. Hi John,

    Our thoughts and prayer are with the people in the US struggling the affects of the storm that’s hit.
    I am a church worker in Cullercoats in the North East of England along way from what’s happening but we have had bad storms and unprecedented rains and flooding along our coast this year too. Changing the subject have just come across your art and love the colours and subjects you choose. Can we use 2 of your nativity scenes ‘Nativity Nap time’ and ‘Heavenly peace’ for Christmas postcard invitations we distribute free to our community?

    Yours Faithfully

    John Morley

  48. Hi, I´m a mexican harpist. I´d love tu use your Star Song drawing for a Christmas Latinamerican Harp Music Cd cover. This is not for comercial purposes but only artistic and spiritual. Thanks: Enrique

  49. Hello John,

    What a talent! Your recent ‘First Family’ – Nativity family portrait under the Natal Star is superb work. We would like your permission to use it in our free church children’s choir carol services this December, starting on 15th. We would also like to ask how much shipping would be to send a print to mainland UK, we’re thinking of buying one and maybe raffling it – I’m sure it would do well. Our church is St Wulfram’s Parish Church, Lincolnshire, England. We look forward to hearing from you. Kind regards, Carl.

  50. Hi, I am a document designer working with a real estate company that does monthly ads of our listings. I was looking for images to use for the Christmas season on the ads and came across one of your images (the nativity scene image with the starry night background) and I think it’s perfect to use in our ad! We are looking to promote religious beliefs of Christ’s birth for the month of December. Would it be okay that I use this image? It is absolutely beautiful! I draw myself, so I can understand the value of beautiful and unique artwork.

  51. Hi, I am a document designer for a small town real estate company and I would like to use the nativity image with the starry night background in our ad for the month of December. We are really trying to promote the birth of Christ and religious ideals, so it would look beautiful in our ads! Please let me know if it is okay for me to borrow it! I draw as well on the side, so I understand the value of beautiful and unique artwork!

  52. I have just discovered your artwork and it is amazing! I would like to use one of your pieces for the front of our Advent worship bulletins this year, 2012. I have not decided which one, however. Please advise. . . By the way, I am an United Methodist Deacon serving a church in east Tennessee. Small, small world.

  53. Hello, thank you for sharing your unique and beautiful artwork with the online community. Your images always come up when I do a google search for various bible verses, and I always admire your work! I noticed that you have given permission to a number of churches to use your art on their bulletin covers. I am secretary at Cashmere United Methodist and was wondering if we could use your Christ the King piece for a bulletin cover?

  54. Good Afternoon, I LOVE your work… it speaks to me and draws me into each photo to want to know more. I am a secretary for a church in Michigan and I would really like to use your Advent drawings for our bulletins. Would that be a possibility? Thank you for all you do for the Love of Christ!
    Teresa

  55. I just discovered your beautiful, inspiring art on line. May my parish in Massachusetts (USA) use one of your Advent pieces on our bulletin cover? Our parishioners will love it! Many thanks. Robert

  56. Such beautiful artwork! Our small Presbyterian Church in St. Paul was wondering if we could use your advent candle prints for the cover of our bulletins this season.

  57. I do the notices for a Methodist Church near Truro in Cornwall. Would it be possible to use your art on the front of the notices for the weeks leading up to Christmas. Beautiful, by the way.

    Jennifer

  58. Dear Stushie,
    You know how to say how we feel with your paintbrush!
    We have a wonderful new pastor and would like a fresh, exciting perspective of the Nativity for our Christmas Eve bulletins. Your art is perfect for that purpose. Could we please use two of your images for Christmas Eve bulletins? It would be a one time publication and would also be posted as a PDF bulletin on our website, but with full credit given to you.

    Blessings,
    Kathy Wilhelm
    Church Administrator, First Presbyterian Church, Cumberland MD

  59. Like others, I would very much like your permission to use your work on our Christmas bulletins. I will follow the guidelines outlined above — giving credit and a link to your website. And I’ll send you a copy 🙂

  60. Love your work! May I use one of your pieces on a church bulletin insert describing our church pageant to be presented on Epiphany? We are an episcopalian church with about 40 people in the congregation on a typical Sunday. I would credit you and provide a link to your website, of course.

  61. I am so delighted to find your artwork. These nativity pieces are so lovely. It is last minute, but our christmas bulletins having never arrived, I was looking for images online for our christmas eve bulletin for our small methodist church in Wellesley, MA. Is it possible you would grant permission to use one of yours? (with credit given to you and a web address in the bulletin, of course, and sending you a copy) If not in time, perhaps we can use one next year. They are so beautiful. What a blessing. Thank you for being so generous with your gifts and your work. Peace and blessings to you.

  62. Hello,

    Thank you for your art – love it. Would it be possible to use one of your crayon pieces (“First Family”) tomorrow morning in our Christmas Day service at a small Baptist church in Ballarat, Victoria, Australia? It will be included in a video reflection with accompanying music inviting the congregation to reflect on the story of the birth of Jesus. Attribution will be included in a final slide naming all the artists and their works.

    Blessings at this Christmas time.

  63. I am a pastor of a small congregation in Cleveland, Ohio. I love your nativity print. I hope that it is ok to use it for the cover of our bulletin on Christmas Eve. I will share your site with my community! Thank you for sharing your gift.

  64. Good Morning, Stushie! I am a Children Catholic Faith teacher for 5th graders at my parish, St. John Fisher, Chicago, IL. I was very fortunate to have stumbled upon your beautiful work as I was researching pictures of the Epiphany. Your depiction of the baby Jesus and the 3 Magis kneeling before the New Born King & offering gifts under the North Star is simply precious and has touched my heart so deeply. Would it be possible to share your beautiful artwork with the Children of my class, my facebook page and our congregation? I will definitely share your site and your name on your artwork. Thank you in advance for sharing your amazing talent and creative works with the world. God Bless you today and always, Jo Moran

  66. Good Day Stushie! grounded4LIFE, a new ministry at the Baptist Church in Chester VT, is hosting an art exhibit curated by Christians In The Visual Arts. This week’s program includes activities for the children (involving an aweful lot of crayons). May we share your image of “The Lion and the Lamb at Peace Together” on our facebook page, and others with the children to inspire their own creativity? Blessings, Rev. Tom Charlton

  67. Hi Stushie,
    What a treasure trove of beautiful art! Could we please use one of your lovely Easter Psalm artworks (Psalm 118) as a small bookmark for some of the children to take home after experiencing a range of Holy Week activities? God Bless your gift 🙂

    1. Hi Kath, thanks for your kind message. That’s a great idea and one that I heartily approve. Thanks for asking. If you need a larger jpg to help with printing, let me know and I’ll send it to you via email. God bless.

  68. Thank you so very much for your inspiring art! I am a PCUSA pastor serving in OK. I just posted on of you Celtic Cross pictures to my congregations’ Facebook page with a link to your site. Then I realized I should have asked permission. I ask for forgiveness! Thanks again for you beautiful art!!

    Peace, Jennifer 🙂

  69. John,
    I’m including your artwork in our next issue of Christian Courier as we discussed. I’d love to include a photo of you as well if you’re willing to send me one. I’d need it soon – by May 9th at the latest. (Not sure how often you check this website). My email address is cathy@christiancourier.ca. I’ve had an opportunity to check out this website further and hope we can use your work again in the future. Love the vividness and joyful simplicity. The work has tremendous hopeful energy.

    Warmly,
    Cathy

  70. Hello Stushie,
    You were so kind in letting us use one of your nativity images on our Christmas Eve bulletin at Christ Church United Methodist in Wellesley, MA. I wonder if you’d be willing to let us use one of your Pentecost Dove images on Pentecost? Again, your work is so wonderful, inspired and inspiring. Thank you for sharing it so generously with us. Peace, Jeanne

  71. Hi Stushie,
    Would it be OK for our small parish to use one of your Pentecost images for our weekly bulletin cover? If you grant permission, I’ll make sure that it’s properly attributed & will cite the web address for you blog.
    Catherine

  72. Dear Stushie,

    What a blessing you continue to be! I would like to once again use one of your works for a bulletin cover. I’ve downloaded it, but now cannot find it on your site!!! (I’m dumbfounded as to how to get around all the images.) It is a white dove with a heart in it’s back above a multicolored checkerboard grid. I think the date said May 17, but obviously that can’t be. Anyway, your work is so obviously blessed by God – I’m moved every time I visit. As Always, I’ll refer the observer to your site. I appreciate you!

  73. I LOVE your artwork. I am a pastor for First Christian Church in Bethany, IL. I have been searching for an image of the Holy Spirit to inspire a tattoo. I would like to use “Free Fall” as the inspiration for my next tattoo. I am imprinting the third person of the Trinity for the 3rd anniversary of my ordination.

  76. We’d love to use some of your Advent images for bulletins covers at St. Matthew’s Episcopal in Evanston, IL. Would that be ok?

  77. I love your artwork, and am wondering if we can use some of your images as “clipart” in our Christmas church newsletter. Brenda Tuplin, Moose Jaw First Free Methodist Church

  78. Beautiful work! The “Digital Glass” process seems interesting. I am preparing a cover for our annual Service of Lessons and Carols bulletin. We always use a picture of the Nativity created by one of the great masters. This year my wife saw your work and we would like your permission to use “Royal Baby” this year. Please advise!
    Enjoy this Advent Season and Merry Christmas to you and yours!
    Don Durham, St. George Episcopal Community, Ft. Meade, MD.

  79. Your image on the program for ” A Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols” at Emory University is lovely and your web site is loaded with other beautiful and creative images. Hope to learn your techniques sometime.
    Blessings

  80. Like everyone else, I found your images stunning and would like to use one of your advent images in our flyer for Christmas services which usually is printed, sent via email and posted on our website. I would of course credit you and link back to your website.

  81. Your art is really beautiful, I love it. I am the Office Manager at St. John’s Episcopal Church in Wytheville, VA. May I have permission to use one of your nativity pictures on the front of our Candlelight Christmas Eve Service this year?

  82. I LOVE your artwork, and would like to use your Advent 4 artwork on the cover of our Sunday leaflets this week. 65 copies. I would also like to post it to Facebook, and give proper credit to you of course. Please let me know if I have your permission. Can you let me know the cost to use 2 more in the future, then email me a quote for all 3? We don’t need any prints. Thank you!
    -Janet

  83. Hello. I am very keen to get hold of a copy of the northern lights over the forest print. I have sent you a private email. Many thanks.
