Remember how far you’ve come
Posted Nov 6, 2016


Sometimes in the middle of a struggle or a challenge we forget how far we have come. We forget all the steps that we’ve taken and the courage it took to keep going.  We forget how much we have grown and the changes we’ve made. If you are feeling frustrated or think that you have not accomplished what you thought you would. Take a moment to remember. Relish in the successes, the changes, the journey YOU are amazing… !

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!
