“Bloom” mixed media canvas by CT member Jessie Barton
Posted Sep 4, 2019

We recently moved to a new state and admittedly it’s been hard for me to accept being away from friends and family.

This painting is a reminder to bloom where I’m planted. To accept it and find the joy in this new place! To reach out and meet new people and cherish life, wherever I go.

This is a painting theme I’ve done before but this time with very bright colors. 

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!
