Emily Ding is a muralist who draws inspiration from flora, fauna, and human temperament. Her large-scale work is characterized by expressive animals and figures, which come to life through bold color gradients and a fluid, painterly style. Resonating deeply with the phenomena of the natural world, she aims to communicate emotions and experiences, through storytelling with wild creatures and people.

This mural, completed during the 2019 mural festival, is designed to raise awareness of the Kittatinny Ridge. Also known as Blue Mountain, the Ridge runs through 12 Pennsylvania counties including the Harrisburg area. Raptors, birds and plant life native to the Kittatinny Ridge are featured in the mural.
