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, living my dream of creating every day. I've been teaching and creating for over 26 years in many different mediums but found my art soul mate in mixed media. I produce my own line of stencils, and create soulful and informative workshops on mixed media. But most importantly, I try every day to encourage and inspire. To show love with my paintbrush. To leave my little corner of the world a better place. 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 Always know that you are loved!
