  1. Dear Kathleen, I had a hard time finding your personal webpage… and mistakenly sent you an email on the ScienceArt site, which I understand now is only for people interested in buying art… not taking classes! Please accept my apologies for using the wrong email! I hope you received it and will reply to me regarding possible classes or workshop this Fall on the Olympic Peninsula or other places. Thank you!

  2. Hi Kathleen, I am presently taking the Drawing Nature, Science and Culture: Natural History Illustration 101 through edX.org and have given the following review of you for my first Module in the class, as I was to speak of a Natural History Illustrator in my area. Thank you for being such a wonderful inspiration to me! Blessings!

    “Hello! This is Constance from the Puget Sound in Seattle, Washington. I have chosen to highlight Kathleen McKeehen as my local NHI. Recently I had the pleasure of meeting Kathleen at her studio and I am very much looking forward to studying under her in the new year of 2017.

    Kathleen’s work is beautiful and admirable and I quickly found out that she has a natural and great passion for teaching botanical illustration. I know that she will be a wonderful resource of inspiration to me in the years to come.”

    Hi Kathleen, I am writing to seek your approval with using a Watercolor and pencil rendition of Staghorn fern you produced in 2012. I am writing a book on the subject and would like to include this beautiful piece of art. Hope to hear from you. Kind regards. Darryl
