Be so bold and strong
Posted Feb 26, 2017


Be so bold and strong, that nothing can disrupt your dreams. Sometimes life has a way of changing our course, it sends us in a different direction. So we have to stay steadfast, and sometimes take a moment to look at the map to realize that we have gotten off track. To be so bold and strong to change direction. Don’t give up! You can do this.

Enjoy the video.

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!
