- Work in an art journal with removable pages. If you’re feeling creatively stressed, you don’t have to live with pages that you are unhappy with.
- Use cheap paint. This is not the time to be worried about “wasting” your expensive stuff. Let nothing feel precious!
- Avoid approaching your page with a preconceived idea of what you’d like to create. Just sit down with your supplies and play.
- Turn on some music! Anything that makes you want to dance will do!

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!
