“Finding Home”

This piece just made me smile with lots of texture in the background and lovely vintage papers.

As I am searching my soul and feeling all the feelings of weeks of heartbreak in our world. I just needed to create and find the peace in my heart and looking for the clues of what I can do to be hope and encouragement.

How I can make changes that might be reflected in tangible ways. I am trying to find home.

Enjoy the 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!
