About Finch and Fern Studio

Hi. My name is Kelly Keenan and I am a rural Kansas kid who transplanted myself to Brooklyn, NY after graduating college. I am a fine art Registrar by day, and a painter and potter by night. My husband, Sean, works as a fine art Preparator and is also a skilled photographer and woodworker. Together (with the occasional help from our two small children, Milo and Rose) we form Finch and Fern Studios.

In 2017 we relocated from Brooklyn, NY to Southbury, CT with our kids and our two beloved dogs (Finch and Fern). Our goal: Give our kids a home where they could run barefoot through the grass and surround themselves with nature. Our dogs got a quiet, peaceful place to live out their golden years. Although Finch and Fern have both passed, they live on is spirit and continue to inspire our creations. We recently added 2 rowdy new rescue pups to the crew, named Birdie and Duggee.

My painting and pottery is informed by the natural curiosities that surround our home. We take long hikes at the Bent of the River Audubon, Bee Brook and Hidden Valley Preserve. The birds, the bugs and all the other lovely critters that we encounter make their way into my work. My pottery is mostly wheel-thrown. I love working with a wide variety of clays, and honoring our natural surroundings with hand-painted flora and fauna.
