This week I knew what I wanted to say in my work, unlike last week when I wasn’t sure what to create. I knew right away when I wrote the words down in my journal.

I had such a beautiful time creating these wonderful souls and all the layers within them. I worked hard to make sure they were all different and yet together.

The last few weeks I’ve spent a lot of time writing (and praying) about how I feel like we (as humans) have lost the ability to have a discussion. How to disagree with grace.

I think we’re all hurting in some form or fashion and when we are hurting, compassion for others doesn’t come so easily.

The beauty of all of us collectively living on this planet is our differences. We don’t have to agree, and we shouldn’t. But having empathy for another is a true gift and takes work.

I’ll share more about it in the video and I hope you enjoy the project. YOU are loved!

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!
