She is repaired, Crash the stash journal page
Posted Nov 30, 2017

This journal page just flowed,… I love it when that happens. Every single thing in her hair and on this piece has some meaning to me, I didn’t have to write a thing, because I know what everything means. It’s good to remember our journey and how far we’ve come… and that’s the story in this piece. It all represents my journey.

I love using Sennelier oil pastels for the finishing touches and they always look beautiful on faces.

Enjoy your crash the stash video

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!
