The Cat's Meow
British artist S. Anne Lynche bestowed a gift on the Springville Road Branch Tuesday, January 4, as a token of her appreciation for library services and the staff. The unique cats and other creatures painted on natural river rocks have achieved international appeal with art collectors and animal lovers. "Cat Rocks" have been the subject of several television programs, as well as numerous magazine and newspaper articles.
Lynche, who received her training at the Royal Schools of Art, began painting and selling "Cat Rocks" at her former studio in Dallas, Texas. She now has her current studio in Pass Christian on the Mississippi Gulf Coast.
