Keep growing
Posted Jul 24, 2016


Finding some really great moments of learning this week. Filling my space with video, books and music that inspire and teach. Things that make me think… that fill me up and help me grow.  I hope that you can do the same. One great book or motivational speech can snap you out of a bad attitude and into a place of change and learning.

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!
