discounts and I have nature and art and poetry… Grateful Sunday Inspiration
Posted Feb 11, 2018

“…and then, I have nature and art and poetry, and if that is not enough, what is enough?” 
― Vincent van Gogh

Oh I have so much to be grateful for, but some days it seem that it’s so hard to find. When I came across this quote by Vincent Van Gogh…. It brought me back from my grumpy nature and reminded me that …. I need to be present and choose to find the things that are a delight, the everyday things that are such a blessing. For be some seasons I really have to “practice” being grateful and other seasons is just seems to flow. What ever season you are in… look around today to find what you are grateful for.

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!
