Sharing the love… art inspired!
Posted Apr 16, 2016


I love it when I get an email from a beautiful soul who has connected with some part of what I do. Art, Sunday Inspiration, Stencils….. something…. and virtual hugs are exchanged and stories are shared. It is one of the best things about what I do.

I also love it when one of my Sunday Inspiration videos inspires a piece, it makes me all kinds of giddy inside! Melodie Wilson is one of the brave ones who shared her creation, and a few more…… and I am grateful and honored!


I love it!…. and I believe that might be one of my stencils… for courage!

She also shared some journal pages with me..

Melodie is a beautiful soul with an even better story!  She teaches at Impressive Ideas in Atlanta Georgia, so if you are in the area you should check out some of her workshops. You can also see her work on her website:

Thank you Melodie for sharing with me!

If you have artwork that has been inspired by a workshop or Sunday Inspiration or… You have used one of my stencils in a project I would love to see it and share…

We are better together!

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!
