Every stitch tells a story of who I am becoming…. We all have our story, the joy.. the pain, the growth and change, or maybe it was brokeness or happiness… whatever your path…. we all have experienced the journey…. I have a different map than you…. and we took different roads… but we are all traveling to be the best people we can be, mended and strong…  I am a firm believer that no one does it alone and as we grow, heal, change and expand our wings, there are those that have walked with us, encouraged us and partnered with us to carry the load and vice versa.  I am truly thankful for my cheering squad…!!!!  I pray for them everyday and could not imagine traveling without them! It is so important to have supportive people surround us and encourage our dreams… and not entertain those that are toxic and exhausting….! Healthy connectedness makes us stronger.. challenges us and empowers us!!! Great friendships can lead us to wholeness and healing….I love my girls! … and life would not be the same without them!

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!
