Where do you find your passion?

Know that no matter how long the road has been, You are strong.  I know that it might seem like you’re never going to get there…. to that place that you want to be… but perseverance and passion will carry you when you are tired.  Keep going and take a moment to enjoy the process… the journey…. and by all means, relish the passion that flows inside of you.

Here are a few quotes I found on passion… I hope they inspire you!

1. Nothing great in the world has been accomplished without passion – George Wilhelm

2. Follow your passion, and success will follow you. ~Terri Guillemets

3. Don’t ask yourself what the world needs; ask yourself what makes you come alive. And then go and do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive. ~Attributed to Howard Thurman

4. Without passion man is a mere latent force and possibility, like the flint which awaits the shock of the iron before it can give forth its spark.  ~Henri-Frédéric Amiel, Journal, 17 December 1856

5. Passion is universal humanity.  Without it religion, history, romance and art would be useless.  ~Honoré de Balzac

6. Man (woman) is so made that when anything fires his soul, impossibilities vanish. ~Jean de la Fontaine

7. Our passions are the true phoenixes; when the old one is burnt out, a new one rises from its ashes. ~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

8. “The most powerful weapon on earth is the human soul on fire.” ~ Ferdinand Foch

9. “When we love, we always strive to become better than we are. When we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better too.” ~ Paulo Coelho
10. Forget about the fast lane. If you really want to fly, harness your power to your passion. Honor your calling. Everybody has one. Trust your heart, and success will come to you.” ~ Oprah Winfrey

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!
