You will Fly Again
Posted May 15, 2013


My friends, …. you might be feeling like your wings are broken, and you will never fly again.  Let me assure you that with time… healing will happen and you will fly…. sour…. coast to your hearts desires.  Until then take care of your wounds, do what is best for health and recovery.  Take it slow and sometimes you have to feel the pain for healing to begin.  Surround yourself with people who will encourage you to rest but not get stuck and who will nudge you out of the nest when you’re ready to stretch your wings.  Take a rest right now and get quiet inside and speak to your heart and soul and tell them (tell you) that you are going to be ok… you are going to make it.  Laugh….laugh out loud, laugh till you snort… it is soooo good for you!  Please know that no one makes it alone and that I have had my wings broken more times than I care to remember…. but I am flying….flying higher than ever before.  Know that you are loved and you are not alone, and that YOU WILL FLY AGAIN!

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!
