MY STORY

Art as Language

My name is Faye Kennelly, I am first and foremost a visual artist, I work primarily in clay and also teach wheel throwing in New Orleans, but there are many intersections of my identity, I am a cis, queer, neurodivergent, able bodied, educated white female in addition to my highly sensitive traits which I believe foster and embolden my creativity. I am a registered Art Therapist and Licensed Professional Counselor with nearly a decade of experience in the field. I am currently based in New Orleans, offering virtual sessions. Born and raised in New England I never imagined I would put down roots in the south, but the warmth and slow pace has got me good. I began my private practice in NOLA at the beginning of the pandemic, a silver lining I will forever be grateful for. Today, I feel honored to welcome you to the process of uncovering through visual language. Introducing people to the meaning and sanctity of art making is my most important role as an Art Therapist. 

My work in the helping profession has brought me to a variety of settings and environments such as day treatment programs, inpatient psychiatric hospitals, alternative high schools, outpatient treatment programs and now private practice.
