I’m on the road this week and I had limited supplies as you will see in Sunday’s video… but, I still had fun and got a chance to play around with my stencils.

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!

    How about “empathy” or “console”. I just got back from visiting my mother-in-law in an Alzheimer’s facility and these are the words that come to mind.

    Hi Shawn,
    I love your artwork…you make it look effortless. My word would be “Renew”. Nice and short but it can mean many things.
