Angel of hope with soft texture 11-20-22
Posted Nov 20, 2022

I always create a few angels each year and right now felt like the perfect time.

I had a plan to call her angel of protection, but as I created and thought through my feelings I knew that she needed to be the angel of hope.

As I was creating, on my table in my jar of scraps was this little yellow butterfly. And what better symbol of hope than the butterfly? I love it when things like that happen!

The journey that a butterfly takes to become the beautiful creature they are gives me hope.

I hope you enjoy the project with all its layers and texture. 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!
