I love it when you’re creating and the meaning shows up in the process.

Spring has sprung and our little town is full of life and is as cute as small towns get. I just love it!

After a drive into town… I came home so filled with gratitude that I wanted to record the beauty and quaintness of where we live. But I wasn’t sure if I would put a word on it or leave it blank. I journaled out my thoughts and then it all came together.

I love how it came out and all the textures!

I’ll share all about the process and the journey to perspective in the video. I hope you enjoy it!

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!
