Thanks for letting me share in todays video….. We are all on the journey together, our circumstances might be different, but we are more alike than we are different. So when life is crazy, busy, heavy or too much…. reach out to your tribe and let someone speak truth into your life…. so that it can drown out the lies. I want to tell you the truth…. YOU are amazing and capable of so much…. I want to encourage you today to find the truth, write the truth and practice the truth, that you are unique and simply beautiful.

Always know that 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!


  1. Cyndi Cesare

    Shawn, I look forward to Sundays to see what you have created…..and the bits of honesty and inspiration that you impart each week. Love the stencils and the “Journey” piece. Thank you!!!!!!!!

    • Shawn

      Cyndi, Thank you so much!Have a great Sunday. You are loved!

  2. Sarah Miller

    I think how you felt was going around lately. My health problems were made worse, I didn’t get any art finished, blah, blah. Thanks for sharing. The only way I can get out of my funk is to pray and seek wisdom, and go see my therapist. Blessings to you.

    • Shawn

      Sarah, prayer, seeking wisdom and therapist is a good combo to start hearing the truth! Always know you are loved! I hope I can encourage you. Hugs!
