If you've ever wanted to own art from a convicted murderer, now is your chance.
According to ABC News, Jodi Arias' art website is selling limited edition prints of a drawing she created while in jail.
While it is unknown where the profits from the images end up, the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office said Arias can't run a business out of prison.
"She's able to have access to paper and purchase color pencils, and if she wants to release her property to someone outside, she can," said Chris Hegstrom, spokesman for the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office that oversees Arias's incarceration.
"She's not physically running a business from our jail," Hegstrom said. "I can't stop her from talking on the phone or releasing property."
Hegstrom said people can contribute money to Arias' commissary fund.
Arias' artwork was also sold on eBay in January with most images going for $300 to $400. Profits from those sales went to trial-related costs, including transporting Arias' family between California and Arizona.
