Find your light
Posted Jan 8, 2017


So often the world and all its craziness can dull our light… and even some circumstances can make us feel like there is no flame at all. That all that is left in us is the smoke from where the flame once burned.

I love this quote from Bette Midler… Find your light, because, they can’t love you if they can’t see you.

There are many who need your light… who want to encourage you. Applaud you. High five you… who will be encouraged and uplifted by your glorious light. So if your flame is dim…. fan it….  Go on a journey to find it… whatever it takes to bring it back, because the world needs your beautiful, beautiful light. Don’t be shy, don’t be embarrassed by your glow… show it off! Stand up and Shine!

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!
