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!

    Awesome project Shawn. Love it ! I miss Ohio. I am off to try and find your video on the flower you used. It looked like you printed it on some see through paper?

    Beautiful! Thank you for your uplifting talk at the end, I needed to hear that. Also for mentioning about the flower transfer, throughout the video I was thinking what is that and how did it become see through, now I know. I love your stamps, would you consider having your own stamp line, I have no idea how to make the dots and squares you stamped on the edges, the flower stamp is perfect for backgrounds. Have a great day, thank you for the inspiration, now I need to get creative. We are seeing signs of spring here too, spring is my favourite season.
