I did not do a weekly wrap video because…. I’ve got a cold…. it’s not pretty!


This is how I filmed this weeks video…. feeling sexy! (We have to be able to laugh at ourselves!)

Enjoy a little Sunday inspiration video!

Donna Downey’s artist gang Tuesday was alot of fun this week! Brian Miller brings a cup of inspiration….see it HERE.


 Today’s video is a reminder for you….. that you are beautiful. We forget to say that to ourselves. We forget to give ourselves grace and love. We give it to everyone around us and dole out compliments to our kids, family, significant others but when it comes to our own soul we can barely whisper the words,…. you are beautiful! Let’s take a breather and laugh at ourselves, our faults, quirks, our over weightness, our under weightness, our too tallness, too shortness… too this … tooo that.  We are each unique with a boat load of gifts and talents… that the world is waiting to see… no,.. that the world NEEDS! YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL, RIGHT NOW, JUST THE WAY YOU ARE, PERIOD. END OF STORY! (that was my mama voice). Give yourself some love today, some grace…. and maybe you can only whisper it today, but keep saying you are beautiful everyday, put those words where you can see them, say it before you go to bed and when you wake up,…. and that voice WILL get louder!

You are beautiful and 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!
