Flash back and Open your wings fall session early bird registration
Posted Sep 10, 2017

This is a piece I created about 6 months ago for Deco Art Media, I haven’t shared it here or on my You Tube channel… so I thought it would be great to share while I’m on my staycation.

On resting….. so much is stirring in my soul, I have finally found a good pace for resting, soulful exploration and creating…. I am inspired and encourage and have much to share with you as I put all of my thoughts together.

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!
