do-what-you-love-webA little Sunday Inspiration. This was a different piece for me.

Supplies used: Mdf board, matte medium, charcoal pencil, white paint pen, brown paper bag, scrapbook paper, sticker paper from graphic 45, leaf stamp, orange, pink, turquoise green and dark pink acrylic paint.

Creativity really does take courage and to take the time to do what you love, takes even more courage. It’s not selfish to have a life that you love. If we all did more of what we loved, I bet that our souls, family and partners would be happier too! Take some time today. …. You are loved!

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!
