Gage Academy of Art, Seattle | Gage Artists | Featured Artist Kathleen McKeehen Kathleen McKeehen teaches botanical illustration in drawing and watercolor classes at Gage. She studied Natural Science Illustration at the University of California in Santa Cruz, California, has done freelance work for well-known publications, and is a member of the American Society of Botanical Artists, the Guild of Natural Science Illustrators, and the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators. She was kind enough to share her experience in this interview. GAGE: How and when did you first know you wanted to become an artist? McKeehen: The first thing I actually remember drawing and showing to someone - a horse - was probably done around four, and I remember trying to make an illustrated book of birds at six. McKeehen: I took a class in botanical watercolor at the Center for Urban Horticulture (CUH) in 1995, realized I'd found what I was supposed to have been doing all along, and from then on painted every night after finishing up the piles of correcting from my teaching job. McKeehen: After I took that first class at CUH, the instructor suggested I look into the Natural Science Illustration program at UC Santa Cruz (it's now in Monterey.) I can honestly say that every single day there was delightful, although I must also say I didn't really see a lot of Santa Cruz; we worked 15 hours a day, seven days a week, except for one evening when we met at someone's apartment for a few hours and watched the X Files. McKeehen: When I was freelancing, I often didn't have the option to choose; if they wanted baby skunks or Lewis and Clark, that was my subject. McKeehen: The two types of art are often differentiated by the terms "floral art" and "botanical illustration;" while the former really doesn't have any strictures or rules, botanical illustration does. McKeehen: I've always believed that beginners learn best if I focus at first on what they are doing right. View pictures from a recent botanical class taught by Kathleen McKeehen.
