Jeffrey Larson Catholic Art Contest


This week, I am thrilled to announce a new contest sponsored by Jeffrey Larson of The Catholic Artist. Jeffrey is a Catholic convert and artist and has been creating portrait art for more than 20 years. He has recently devoted his talents to creating artwork primarily of Catholic saints and holy people. His work is created in black and white using graphite and sometimes pen and ink. Use of a pencil or pen allows him to capture stunning detail and realism in his artwork while the black and white medium is fitting for the simplicity and holiness of his subjects. Mother Teresa, Pope John Paul II & St. Padre Pio are a few of the prints and note cards available, with many more drawings and prints coming soon. Most of his prints are in a limited edition and are signed and numbered by the artist. Jeffrey is a husband and father of six and resides in Omaha, Nebraska.

Two lucky winners at will each receive one of the following prizes:

  • Pope John Paul II Art Print
  • Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta Art Print


Be sure to visit to view their beautiful line of products and support Jeffrey Larson in the beautiful work he is doing.

    Jeffrey is not only a great artist, he is a devoted husband and father. My husband and I met them on a couples retreat at Broom Tree Retreat Center in the Diocese of Sioux Falls, SD. It was great to get to know them that weekend.

    Amazing! I’ve come across his work before, but did not know the man behind the pencil/brush. Thank you for pointing me to his website.

  3. What beautiful work! Hoping for the Pope John Paul one for my Dad, who got to receive communion from him at a mass in Saint Peter’s crypt. But it’s all just beautiful work!

    The first word that came to mind was “beautiful” when I saw the artwork. It seems that I am not alone in this feeling.

    What a God given talent! Jeffrey truly captures the holiness in his subjects. May God continue to bless him and his family.

  6. This is truly beautiful work. I’m glad I was directed here by the Faith and Family podcast to take a look!

  7. What beautiful work! I had not seen his work before now. So very captivating! I would love to own either of these.
