“My focus is on the Appalachian landscape with its distinct diversity of ecosystems, mountain vistas and lush veil of atmosphere as well as our our ongoing relationship with the land. This relationship is constant and has profound consequences for all species. I am forever grateful for the transcendent beauty and quality of life afforded by these ancient mountains. They teach me and they touch me deeply. It is my hope that as we cultivate our awareness of this complex and essential connection with Nature, we can begin to heal the earth and ourselves.” — Deborah Squier
