I created six paintings on silk to celebrate the natural beauty of the Antigonish area and to help bring nature indoors to the library. Each of the images features wild or cultivated flowers, creatures familiar to all, and people reading books. Sarah O'Toole coordinated the reproduction of my images on banners and installed them in the Bistro Area. My belief that art improves lives, and that the People's Place Library will be an important gathering place for our community, made me excited and grateful to participate in this public art project. Thank you to all who made it possible! My work can also be seen at the Dickson Building of the QEII Health Sciences Centre in Halifax, the Antigonish Mediplex, the Antigonish Women's Resource Centre, and at Lyghtesome Gallery in Antigonish.
