“Poinsettia Surprise “mixed media canvas by creative team member Sherry DiPaolo
Posted Dec 18, 2019

Christmas is such a magical time of the year and one of my favorite times.  I love to decorate my home and I go all out with the decorating.  I have two trees, I decorate every room on the 1st floor of my home, and I add the Christmas spirit to my front porch.  Naturally when I found out I was doing a video in December I had to do a Christmas themed piece and when Shawn’s Christmas stencils came out and I saw the poinsettia stencil I know I was doing a bouquet of flowers for the dining room table (except this one is on canvas and for the wall hehehe 😊)

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!
