Hello there! I’m Shawn Petite

I’m so glad you’re here! About 15 years ago I found my art soul mate in mixed media, and it changed my life! I love the story that can be told by combining paint, texture, paper and … really anything that you can imagine.

Will you join me on this journey of art and inspiration?
