Soul Seeking play day
Posted Oct 2, 2015


Well….. it’s fall…. and that means a change in pace. My busy season. Shows, orders, commissions, workshops and projects. This week was crazy busy and I’m scrambling to try to get a good flow…. to get a routine in the craziness, if that’s even possible.

I hadn’t had time to play in a while and thought how the heck am I going to to have time… but I just made time……… it was midnight and I was tired, but as soon as I started getting paint on paper… the calm came, the quiet joy…mmm it felt good and right and perfect.

Here is what my soul created in the middle of the night, with all humans and animals tucked in tight in there beds… my soul had a little party.






Make space today to find what your soul is seeking.

Be inspired, create and 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!
