John Stuart (Artist)
About the Artist
The Scottish artist John Stuart, who goes by the art name of Stushie has been drawing and doodling for as long as he can remember. He now resides in Knoxville, Tennessee and has been pastoring at Erin Presbyterian church there for over fifteen years.
Several years ago, he started an arts project of drawing the Book of Psalms for children. So far he has completed 101 of 150 potential drawings. During the project, he stumbled across a process of using wax crayons tocreate chalk-like drawings. He calls the process “Digital Glass” because he initially used it to create stained glass patterns.
In the past year, Stushie has developed this process to produce beautiful landscapes, still life, and other drawings of subjects that interest him. After each drawing is made and the digital print is created, the pictures display a lot of texture and some of the wildlife ones that Stushie has created are almost 3-D.
Stushie has exhibited his artwork in various coffee houses in Knoxville, Tennessee and has sold almost 200 prints.
“Stushie” is a Scottish word for a fight, something radical, or a rabble-rouser…
