Something Different, be still and thank you!
Posted Aug 21, 2016


I am beyond grateful for this last Birthday week. You are amazing! At one point there were so many in the shop that things just stopped working…. I had a little panic moment and then spent 45 minutes with the tech guys and we got it fixed.. whew! Anyway….. All orders that came in during the Birthday week sales are in the mail! Again thank you from the bottom of my heart!

This weeks Sunday Inspiration was fun and something that I have been wanting to try… I need a little bit more practice and time than and I this week, but I really do love how she turned out and plan on experimenting more.

As I started creating,  I asked myself as I always do, what I need to feel, hear or learn this week. And she came…. a woman that needs to be still for a bit and take care to create a peaceful heart.

I hope you get a chance to be still and recharge and invest in yourself for a bit this weekend.

Enjoy your Sunday Inspiration video!




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!

    Thank you so much for this! I was in the process of making a “fashion” type collage as a gift for a friend to hang in her new salon and I was stuck. I had started off going in a couple a directions, but they just weren’t working. Then I took a break and watched your video and that laid the groundwork for me. I incorporated some of what I saw in your video that I never would have come up with on my own. It turned out beautifully and she loves it. Thank you again for sharing your amazing techniques every week!
