I can’t believe this is my last Artist Gang for 2015…. what an amazing year it has been, with an equally amazing team to work with.

Bill and Donna Downey are some of my favorite people and alot of fun!

I look forward to what 2016 has in store.


Head on over to Donnas site to watch as I create this beauty with Donna Downey Signature Stencils and a whole lot of other goodies.

The supplies will be listed on her blog along with detailed photos.

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!
