Artist/Creative Soul Shawn Petite

Well Hello There! And thank you for allowing me to join you on your creative journey! My name is Shawn Petite and I’m a mixed media artist. I've been teaching and creating for over 26 years in many different mediums but found my art soulmate in mixed media. One of my greatest joys is to know that I've encouraged YOU on your path to creativity. My favorite quote: I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel. " Maya Angelou Let's have fun creating together!
