With Brave Wings She Flies……

What do you need to be brave about this week?  What action do you need to take, or what break do you need give yourself.

I’m rooting for you, lifting you up in my thoughts.

You are strong enough to take care of your soul…

I love the contrast of the black and white in this piece… and I really get into the circles…. it was therapeutic. Peaceful.

 Actually any and every day in my journal is good for me.

Enjoy you Crash the Stash 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!
