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…

  3. John is a multi-talented amazing man of God. He inspires all of us in his congregation to use ourselves for God`s glory. Everyone has a gift to share and John`s gifts are many.

  4. I am blessed to have several prints from Mr. Stewart hanging in my house. The thing I love most about them is how lost you can get simply by looking at them. They draw you in…almost putting you directly in the moment. Thank you for sharing your talents, and inspiration with us! – Rickey McCallum

  5. I have been an admirer from afar for a long time through the art John Stuart shares with his daily devotional. I would love to own one of his pieces.
    An absolutely amazing talent

  6. Enjoy reading your daily devotion and seeing your art/drawing work. Several pictures in the above reminds me of old south and some gives European flavor.

    One of my favorite movie is Forest Gump. Tom Hank plays the main character.
    In one of the scenes in the movie Forest Gum returns home to Green-bow AL in his army uniform the shot is taken from the inside of the home with his mother (Sally Fields) standing, right behind Forest Gump green grass and typical of Moss trees (I am not sure about the exact name of these trees but exclusively seen/grows in south with lots of filaments like growth hanging down). The 4th picture from top with green grass and a straight road and house in the background and Moss trees looks beautiful.

  7. Beautiful art regardless of your chosen technique. I love the steam overhung by dogwoods. It really comes to life.
