Grace is needed every day
Posted Apr 16, 2017

I know I have given the definition of Grace before, but I always go back to it again and again.

Grace: is a reprieve from our sentance, kindness,  forgiveness and charity.

I don’t know about you, but I certainly need that everyday. As an imperfect human, I am grateful for Grace.  I also know that as much as I need it, I also need to give it. Everyday.

Happy Easter if you celebrate it. I hope that your day is filled with love, hope and Grace today.

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!
