Hello there! I’m Shawn Petite

I’ve been teaching and creating for well over 25 years. 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, ink, paper and—really anything that you can imagine.

But what I’m truly passionate about is being your guide, walking with you step by step and helping you become your own hero in your creative journey.

Along my path, I’ve learned that the creating art also creates a healing space. Life can be messy and complicated and painful, but something about a paint brush can help heal your soul. I believe—no, I know—you are worthy of love, and I want to teach you to know that about yourself. Join me on this journey of art and inspiration!

I wanted to try something new this week, and I almost talked myself out of it a couple of times. But I'm so glad I continued even though I wasn't sure what I was doing. I tried to create a graphic screen print look with simple supplies and I love how it turned out. Yes, there are things that I'd do differently the next time, but that's the whole point when we try something new. When we're stepping outside of our usual ways, outside of our comfort zone, we rarely get it right the first time....
