Arwen Donahue is a farmer and artist who lives and works in rural Kentucky.

Her recent book “Landings: A Crooked Creek Farm Year” chronicles - through her words and her watercolor drawings - a year of daily life on a family farm.

Some of those drawings are featured in the director’s cut of the documentary “Look & See: A Portrait of Wendell Berry” - novelist, poet and also a farmer in Kentucky.

Arwen traveled to the city of Lexington to speak with us online.
