“I like to think of my work as trying to capture the emotional and spiritual landscape. I am not as interested in what is literally there as much as what is felt through water, earth, atmosphere, and sky. These are my visual attempts at translating our shared human story through the metaphor of nature.” Dawn Waters- Baker
