the-last-thoughtThose who give will know joy…..
Giving doesn’t mean that your life will be perfect, or that you give to get. What it does mean… is that there is peace from giving of yourself. There is a sense that there is more than just the issues that we deal with. Giving changes our perspective. Giving blesses others and our soul.

I guarantee that if you are struggling with an attitude or disappointment and you decide to do something for someone that is not expecting it… it will change you. It won’t change your circumstances but it will change your focus, your heart and yes, your attitude.

My friend, I know that the Holidays are hard sometimes, that not everyone has the picture perfect Christmas Card Holiday. Actually no one does. Let’s take a breather, give yourself a break and rest, and then try giving … I promise it changes you!

Have a fabulous day! 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!
