Signs of hope mixed media 1-16-22

Today's Sunday inspiration piece is super simple. I needed to create without thinking and this is what came out. I'd planned to do my word for the year but couldn't think through what I had planned. We had a family emergency this week that was beyond anything I could...

The cover of my journal and what we find when we are quiet

I always create my cover last... for a couple of reasons. 1. I'm a messy creator so if I did the cover first it would be a mess by the time I got to the end. 2. I want the cover to reflect the contents and my journal as I filled it. I started this journal the second...

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 andreally 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 believeno, I knowyou are worthy of love, and I want to teach you to know that about yourself. Join me on this journey of art and inspiration!
