Choosing Joy
Posted May 22, 2014

Being joyful to me is not a giddy, cheerleader type of emotion. But an inner knowing that all is well. That I have a bed to sleep in and food in my belly. That no matter what life throws at me, (and there have been some curve balls thrown) I will be ok. Being joyful is a choice. I truly believe that choosing joy takes work some days. Other days it is easier. I also think that joy comes from contentment, peace and gratitude. Find your joy today, choose it over discontent and bitterness. Work out the kinks in your heart so that you can live and feel joy. It’s a beautiful thing!

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!
