Today was all about simplicity. It’s been a hectic few months in a good way… but I’m feeling the exhaustion setting in.

So today was play, a not thinking kind of project. A let’s try something new and let it be what it is kind of day.  I LOVE those kinds of creative sessions.

So I parked all the swirling thoughts, and to-do lists and showed up to rest. I also tried a new style of trees that I love! And just layered to my heart’s content.

Come get lost in the process with me today, in this simple and relaxing journal page! 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!
