The last thought……….. Balance….. boy am I working on it.  I think that balance is a myth and that life calls us to focus on certain things at certain times. What’s important in our hectic days is to pause for a moment and appreciate the journey. Appreciate the crazy, the hard work, the struggle, the quiet, the healing time, the smile, the hug…..

For me I get so caught up on the end result…. obtaining the next level of success…. working on getting to the next thing… that I forget to enjoy the process. I miss some of the beauty of the journey. So as I close out another 70 hour work week…. I am breathing and spending time with my honey…. planning trips to see my kid and really refocusing on what’s important….. appreciating the little things a midst the journey.

I so appreciate your support, your love, your kind words and all the inspiration that you give to me…. YOU are SO 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!
