The words journeying onto the canvas, closely entwined with each other. Hours of painting produced my first ever canvas that was truly ‘a piece of my mind’.”[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][prkwp_spacer size=”356″][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/3″][prkwp_styled_title prk_in=”Creative.” text_color=”#324c5d” title_size=”h3″][vc_column_text]I began painting canvases using words about people important in my life and gave them as gifts to them. They captured memories, key moments and words of love and thank yous – a real and true reminder of their significance in my life.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][prkwp_styled_title prk_in=”Versatile.” text_color=”#46b19d” title_size=”h3″][vc_column_text]People began giving me their journey of words to paint on canvas – words about their children, family occasions, pets, wedding song lyrics, words about certain hobbies, friendship memories, christenings, weddings etc; to paint in a variety of original ways.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][prkwp_styled_title prk_in=”Sensitive.” text_color=”#9b59b6″ title_size=”h3″][vc_column_text]It has been and still is a real pleasure to hear and the words that continue to journey on. SMEE art invites people to be part of the art – art that can be personalised and is original, using words that can often be unspoken, unheard or in some moments forgotten.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column][prkwp_styled_title prk_in=”Thanks” align=”Center” text_color=”#dd0404″ title_size=”h3″][vc_column_text]

Many thank yous are on their way to all who have been and still are part of my journey. And so the journey of words continues…
