I loved the journey of this piece. I’m combining so many things that I’ve been inspired by this year.  I feel like it’s a pivotal point in my creative process.

All the practice, play, experimenting and curiosity has brought me to a wonderful place of joy with my work and I can’t wait to see what the next adventure will be.

This year of curiosity is not over and I’m not quite it will ever end, nor should it.

The only thing we as artists can do it try new things, create with no plan, experiment with new mediums and let go of the thought of a perfect project and let things happen. THAT’S when we find the joy, the meaning and our voice in our work.

I’m bringing all the texture that I’ve been playing with over the last weeks along with inspiration from so many other artist that I’ve been inspired from into this abstract landscape.

I hope you enjoy the project and I’ll share more about the process in the video.

Always know that 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!
