Wake Up!
Posted Jul 27, 2013


I have just begun Danielle LaPortes book “The fire starter sessions”…Oh man this is gonna be good! I will give you updates as I get into the book further.  But for now I just need to get this thought out of my head and into the universe…….

I feel so compelled, passionate, driven, to encourage women.  Everyday I come across women who are numb… the walking dead if you will who have compromised who they are, and what they want for, well, for a lot of reasons.  It could be kids, significant others, parents, jobs,religion, self esteem, or a whole lot of other things that put our dreams on hold and quiet the passion that once raged inside.  We all have a unique set of circumstances or crazy story that makes up our life… but Today… Today….. Today…. I beg you….. You my beautiful friend…… to step one step closer to the desires that get you excited, that will wake you up from the long slumber that you have been in! The world needs your your brilliance, fierceness, creativity and your amazing empathy and compassion, You can start today! You can find your passion Today!

Check out this Audio of Danielle Laporte’s Credo… makes me wanna go out and kick some butt today!!! Good Stuff!…. ************Credo-DanielleLaPorte*******

Luv you!

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!
