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!

    First off I have to ask, did you meet Chip and Joanna??? I love watching their show “Fixer Upper”. They are quite the kids at heart.
    Being “uprooted” can be stressful but it sounds like you have that a bit under control. Art will relax you, make things feel a bit normal I guess. Moving for me is just a real mess. I don’t like it and try to avoid it at all costs.
    Life is full of new beginnings and challenges but I am sure you will rise to the occasion Shawn and do just fine. We are learning all the time, learning about ourselves and how strong we really are in this thing called life.
    Can’t wait to see the new digs. Stay safe.
