Sharing the love… art inspired
Posted Apr 20, 2016


I have watched this artist and creative, beautiful soul, grow in here abilities and confidence. In fact she said to me today…. “I think I’m getting braver”  It is by doing that we get braver and stronger. Hannah has been creating and learning and it has been wonderful to watch her own style develop. Here are a few pieces that she has shared with me that were inspired by a Sunday Inspiration video, a workshop she has taken or collage pak.

Thank you Hannah for being brave and sharing!

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!
