Play Day this week….. see it all HERE


The last thought……. It’s Mothers day and Mommas day has always been a little weird for me…. I lost my momma at 15… and some days I feel like I can’t remember her at all…. even though our relationship wasn’t great….. there are so many things that she taught me…. so many life lesson I got from her…. I often wonder what our relationship would be like if she were still alive. All I know is that I am grateful for what she gave me… I am thank ful she chose to have me….. I am thankful for the strength and empathy I received from her death.  Be grateful today for the women in your life that have guided you… whether they are your actual momma or not…. for the lessons you have learned. I know that Mothers day can be difficult for many…. I just want you to know that I love you.

 The other thing I want to say is be open…. open to what is calling you, open to trusting….open to all the blessings ….. open to learning…. I know that you already know what you need to be open to…. I know what is stirring in my heart , I know what God is knocking at in my soul…. It is so easy to be closed… to not be vulnerable…. it is crazy scary to be open….. but if we’re not… there is so much we can miss. I am working on being open is some specific areas and I hope you are too!

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!
