 I love that I get to share this budding Artist with you,……… I met Jenny about 2 years ago as she stumbled upon my blog, left a comment and has encouraged me every step of the way. We shared life stories and it was one of those thing that you knew was meant to be. Soul sisters. Then, my daughter had a hockey tournament in the city that my new friend lived in, so we made plans to meet. We sat and talked and told our stories, cried, laughed and loved!… what a beautiful, soul filling time!

me and jennyLove you my friend…. and nice work!

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!
