Lucy Rollins ’12 is a tough person to define. She is a farmer, an artist, an entrepreneur, an activist, an outdoors enthusiast, a teacher, and a singer. Two years removed from her Williams graduation, she has returned to Williamstown where she now splits her time between farming, painting, working on a small greeting card business, hiking, and attempting to turn an abandoned shed into an art studio.
Despite her wide range of interests, Rollins’ main goal is to find ways to slow time down. “I want to give my life time to stand still and breathe. I want to have experiences that pool into places like little swimming holes and for people to naturally move in and out of my life.”
That desire has led Rollins to return to her childhood love for getting her hands dirty. Whether its stacking hay, planting seeds, or painting canvases, Rollins is deeply engaged in her work. “The things that I’ve gravitated towards allow me to have clear moments when time totally slows down and you can experience the richness of life everyday.”
