The Lone Cypress by Celise McLaughlin

While traveling the Pacific Coast Highway this year we made a stop at the famous Lone Cypress on 17-mile drive at the Pebble Beach Golf Course.  This is one of the most photographed trees in the world; it is estimated to be 250 years old. I was happy to add my own flair to such a recognizable icon.  Hope you 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!
