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!

    Hi Shawn. As always, your painting and video are marvelous. Only problem I had was the sound over on the instructions. Had my speaker up all the way and it was difficult to hear. At the very end, during your conclusion, the sound was fine.

      Gloris…. thanks for the input..I really need to hear that!..I had so many issue with todays video…:( I am going to get a whole new video editing system…Thanks for watching . Hugs and love!

  2. Lynn Hanas

    You inspired me today. Worked on my own version, using some of your ideas, ended up loving it! Thank you, thank you. So glad I found you.
    PS video was fine.

    Hi Shawn! Love your art and always look forward to the Sunday Inspiration. Like Gloria, I had to turn my sound up quite a bit, but other than that it was exceptional. Thanks for always encouraging us!

    • Shawn
