Autumn Fairy 

Julie Campbell

Faces  are featured a lot in my work but when it comes to drawing and painting bodies it can be a bit daunting.  Using Shawns’ Wing and a Prayer stencil as a guide and a jumping off point makes it so much easier.  As you will see there are many variations of characters that can be created. I hope you will be encouraged to create your own little fairy from a few art supplies.

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!
