What is Journey of Words?

Journey of Words is about capturing memories, key moments and producing words that can be used for our design art to produce a true reminder of their significance in someone’s life.
We paint on canvas – words about children, family occasions, pets, wedding song lyrics, words about certain hobbies, friendship memories, christenings, weddings etc; to paint in a variety of original ways.
It has been and still is a real pleasure to hear, read and listen to 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.
Don’t let your memories be forgotten or unheard, talk to us and we will create something to treasure and remember forever.

About Sammie

journey of words_live paint

During a day in 2005, where words filled my head, within a body riddled with my ‘stuff’, I picked up a paintbrush, stared at a blank canvas, dipped a brush into black paint and started to paint words – words that I wanted and needed releasing, yet wanted them to remain hidden – each brushstroke purposefully so close to the previous. 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’.

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. 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.

It has been and still is a real pleasure to hear, read and listen to 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.

So 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…
