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!

    Good morning, Shawn. You are truely an inspiration. I am curious if the sale on stencils has sold out this fast. Hahaha I was online for the Sunday inspiration at about 6 or 6:30 Denver time and wow!!! Saw the sale, worked my way to the stencil section and it seems all are sold out. I guess I just wasn’t on early enough. Or maybe I’m not looking in the right spot, but I’m pretty sure I did and by 6 am, it seems all were sold. I guess I will try for tomorrows sale of something yummy! Thank you, Paula

      The stencils were not sold old. I think you were looking in the wrong spot. You were looking in the clearance section or the birthday week section
      You would use the coupon code for any of the stencils.
      Since there was some confusion for you here is a coupon use the code: paula1 it’s good for a one time purchase on stencils
      Hope this helps

        Hi Shawn, thank you so much for the “special” coupon code. I tried and the code isn’t working. I am still not sure how I couldn’t get anything with the coupon code you sent out for the birthday week. I looked in every spot on the website the first morning and couldn’t get them. I hit the stencils regular stencils tab, the birthday week stencils tab and every way I could, and most everything said sold out. But, you are sweet to give me a coupon for the confusion, now if I can get it to work. It’s not accepting it in the coupon code when I hit apply to my shopping bag. I will keep trying it. I did, however, get the discount on the Layering workshop and went through that this morning. It is great. Alot of good techniques. Thank you.

    Hi Shawn~ I finally decided what workshop I wanted to take and the 40% discount code bdworkshops2019 won’t work. I really don’t want to add credit card info without making sure the coupon code works first. Really bummed it’s 6:29 pacific standard time here. Hugs Kim

    • shawn

      Kim i just checked the code and its working. Maybe check that your putting in the correct code bdworkshops2019 and then you have to hit apply. Sometimes yoy might have to exit and log back in. There have been lots of purchases of workshops..even just a few minutes ago. So i hope you try again. Let me know

      • Kim Sears

        Thanks so much Shawn, I had tried 3 times… It worked this time for me! So excited to take the yummy layered backgrounds class! Happy Birthday!!!! Hugs Kim
