How local agricultural landscape informs my work:
My father and his two brothers grew up on a small dairy farm in Saratoga County. When I was growing up, they raised a few beef cows, sold hay and planted a huge garden feeding our family and many more. My inheritance was roaming the fields, exploring the creek, climbing into the hayloft and savoring the shade of the giant maples. It was here I learned the beauty of creation. This fertile soil of my grandparents’ farm made me an artist.
I love sharing my work and wanderings on this blog and also as LC Kemmerling on Instagram and Facebook.
