Hello everyone. Welcome to my first video for the Creative Team 2020/2021.

Well, here it is, my first mixed media collage using Shawn’s lovely stencils.

Autumn is my favorite season of the year and we are in this season right now, so I decided to start off with an autumnal theme for my first video. This is the first time I have done an art piece with pumpkins and I was really happy with the outcome. You will see how I create a very textured pumpkin using something from my kitchen cupboard. You will see me have fun with Gelli Printing and much much more.

I hope you enjoy the process video and give it a go. There is something here for everyone.

Sharing lots of crafty love.

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!
