This was fun! She came together so easily… I love it when that happens. I also love the grungy crackle, gritty background.

I also love the message…  My art journal is a place where I can let it out and this page was reminding me that there is no time for playing small. Go big or go home … right!  My friends lets be confident and bold with our passions, dreams and desires.

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!
