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!

Feeling some fun October vibes 10-2-22

I had some fun this week and jumped into October and played. Fall is one of my favorite seasons. The colors, the crisp air, the change of season. I also gave myself permission to just play this week. I'll have some fun fall projects to share with you throughout the week! And all fall stencils will be on sale this week at 15% off. Use coupon code: fall22 So that you can have some fall fun too!
