“Forget all the reasons it won’t work and believe the one reason that it will.” …. author unknown.

Today is the day you write your story, you trust your heart, you don’t let anything get in the way of your desires and dreams. Today is the day you stop making excuses and start living. Today is the day you put down the pity party, put on your running shoes and make things happen. Today is the day you stop letting negative thoughts rule and extend grace to yourself. Today is the day….. What will you do with today?

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!
