agrarian, liturgical, Seasonal

Welcome! I’m Kristin Haakenson – an artist, farmer, & mom reflecting on the liturgical year through its agrarian, seasonal heritage.

In life on our farm in the Pacific Northwest, I lean into the agricultural roots & rhythms of the liturgical year – the historic Church calendar, which reframed time within the context of the sacred, the passing of the seasons, and the patterns of farm life. My artwork uses flora, fauna, and the heritage traditions of bygone days to reflect on these ancient, sacred, seasonal cycles – making the fruit of bygone traditions present in our modern lives.

I am going to my own hearth-stone,
Bosomed in yon green hills alone, —
A secret nook in a pleasant land,
Whose groves the frolic fairies planned;
Where arches green, the livelong day,
Echo the blackbird’s roundelay,
And vulgar feet have never trod
A spot that is sacred to thought and God.
