CORNWALL, Ontario – PURE Organic Spa introduced a large painted mural to the south side of their building in Aug. 2021. 

Ryan Smeeton, an artist from Ottawa was commissioned to paint the mural. According to Michelle Longtin, Co-Owner of PURE, Smeeton went above and beyond to take their words and create a beautiful masterpiece, exceeding their expectations. 

We wanted to bring some life to the downtown area, the green signifies us as being Organic as well as a Green Spa.  The colour green is not only part of our logo, but it also signifies purity and nature, and what better way to describe us than with a beautiful foliage of green leaves,” said Longtin. 

Smeeton has painted murals for a living since 2016, and it has been his full time means of employment since.  

“They wanted something that was in-line with their brand, and I ran with a theme of plants/greenery, which is a subject matter I often am drawn to,” said Smeeton.  

“The project went very smoothly and I am definitely proud of how it turned out. I had an incredible time painting it and have to say that I had nothing but lovely, positive interactions with all the passers-by. Cornwall has some of the nicest people.”
