Find your passion Sunday Inspiration
Posted Jan 21, 2018

This original is available HERE and prints on wood available HERE

Finding our passion is almost as hard as living it everyday. There are seasons in our lives that our passions are strong and other seasons where we seem to be drifting. That’s ok… Life requires, at different times all of our attention and we have to set aside somethings to focus on something else… but never let that kernel of hope and passion die. Protect it so that when the weather is better and the season is right you passions can bloom fully.  Then live boldly, loudly and courageously  in your passion and never give up!

If your searching for direction…. listen to your story, your childhood, what excited you back then will most likely delight you today… It might be slightly different but I guarantee that if you follow the trail from childhood back to adulthood… you will find some answers.

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!
