The images used for the Margate Catherine Young Branch Library are flora connected with human learning, openness, and growth. Leaves of pages and plants become one with hands finding the way towards knowledge.

Artist Statement


"The decision to create painted wall-reliefs for the four branch libraries was in response to the community outreach meetings in each neighborhood. People had requested for many different representational images and emphasized the use of color.

The images used for the Margate Catherine Young Branch Library are flora connected with human learning, openness and growth. Leaves of pages and plants become one with hands finding the way toward knowledge."
