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!


  1. Sue Carey

    Thank you Shawn for a beautiful video, but even more for your lovely warm words of love and encouragement. I have been feeling so lost today, the first Easter without my beloved Mother, and your tender words really spoke to my grieving heart.
    Thank you so much.
    Happy Easter to you and yours xx

    • Shawn

      Sue, Oh I’m so glad that my words can encourage! I’m so sorry about time. take the time to feel it and allow healing. Healing doesn’t mean that our love and thought for our loved one goes away, it just means the sting is lessened. You are loved!
