Everyday is a new Possibilitiy
Posted Jan 15, 2017


As we begin a new year… there are new possibilities, new intentions or resolutions. There is strength in planning for the year and future goals. But what if we look at each day like we look at the new year. Every day brings us challenge and joy and we are not always are best every single day. But let’s do our best for this day and let the rest go and start over again the next and the next and the next. Giving each day our best, forgiving ourselves for being imperfect and then rise with enthusiasm the next day.

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!
