I saw a movie last night called “The perks of being a wallflower”… an interesting movie about life and how sometimes, through no fault of our own.. injustice is done to us.  I know that I see life through all of my past experiences and it changes how I view things, but this is not an excuse for hurtful, bad behavior. I choose to use the past to propel me to be better, to learn, grow and have compassion.  ….. At least I try to do that everyday..  ..On a side note…. my kitchen redo is kickin my butt!….I had to redo the stain… grrr .. I just keep telling myself to keep going….  and lastly, I’m tired of hearing myself talk…blogging everyday is definitely a challenge……. Keep going…. keep going. Big smile= Shawn

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!
