I'm not familiar with the package you mention, but have you looked
at the "PSTricks" package  for this purpose? For example,

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{pstricks,pst-plot,pst-text}

\begin{document}

\begin{pspicture}(-3,-1)(3,5)
\psaxes[labels=none,linecolor=gray](0,0)(-3,-1)(3,5)
\pstextpath{%
\psplot[linestyle=none]{-2}{2}{4 x 2 exp sub}}{%
This is the graph of the equation $y=4-x^2$ for
$-2\le x\le 2$}
\end{pspicture}

\end{document}
