“Vintage Christmas Living room” diorama by CT Member Evelyn Walter
Posted Dec 11, 2019

There are only a few days to Christmas now, everybody is busy to get all things done to be ready for the holidays. I had this fruit crate in my stash, waiting to be changed into something beautiful! I love to decorate my rooms for Christmas and I love it cozy and warm, in some parts even a little bit kitschy. I had an idea in mind and started to create my little Vintage Christmas Living room.

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!
