In all the craziness sometimes we just need to – Be Still and Know
Posted Jun 25, 2017

When life gets crazy… when there’s chaos in our work places, our communities, our nations and our world, somtimes we just need to be still and know.

Know that God is in control, or you might say your higher power… the truth teller.

I know that there are times (and right now is one of them) that I just need to let go of my worries, let go of trying to understand circumstances and let go of being in control.

And just be still….. take time to pray or meditate… and ask for guidance and rest.

I hope that your Sunday is restful and you have a place of stillness, rest and letting go.

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!
