“Faith sees the invisible.

Believes the unbelievable.

And receives the impossible”

~Corrie Ten Boom

That quote was the inspiration for this page.

I love the grungyness of this and yet is still has a softness. The texture of the first paper I put down was so beautiful and I wanted it to show up and it did with the glaze, I love it when things go the way I planned it in my head.

I’ve had the main image (the green shutter ) for a long time, I just love the found objects that create an alter symbol. It reminds us to believe the unbelievable.

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!
