Gold, gold and a beautiful story
Posted Oct 12, 2017

I had fun playing with this… The Golden High flow gold was delicious! I love how it makes the page come alive. I also loved the bits from the Tim Holtz ephemera pack and the raised felted paper that gave this page the depth that I wanted. Bringing it all together is the old type text stencil that captures my journey.

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!
