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!

    This is some of the most beautiful saying that I have ever read in my life I share them with others so that they may help them and other people to understand what they’re going through as well as myself this is like God whispering

    • Shawn

      Thanks Rose, I’m so glad that I can inspire you and others!

  2. Gladys Velazquez

    I truly believe that we are spiritual beings having a human experience. Our only reality is Love. Our Purpose is to help each other. Let’s take care of Mother Earth. Thank you, for all these beautiful positive messages

    • Shawn

      Thanks so much Gladys and glad you are here!

  3. Lavonda

    Shawn I just ran across this and loved it and was so moved by it. It’s so meaningful for all our lives and I hope I never forget my part in living and spreading these wonderful messages. They’re not just part of our lives, they are our very heart. Thanks so much for sharing this.

    • Shawn

      Lavonda, Thanks for such sweet words. Love Always Wins!! Hugs and thanks for being here!

    I was disappointed when I pressed your print called Love Always Wins to view and another one about a garden came up.That was nice too but really wanted to see how you made the one in the picture

    • Shawn

      Currently we are having technical difficulties. I’m in contact with our tech guy and will hopefully have it fixed today. So sorry for the inconvenience. Thanks for your patience!
