Mari sketching in Brittany

Greetings to all,

We will be having an open studio of Marie’s artwork on Saturday and Sunday, July 9th and 10th from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm. Artwork available includes lithographs and prints from the late 80’s and early 90’s, as well as reproductions of pages from many of Marie’s sketchbooks.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me via e-mail or by phone, 541-754-9355. Hope to see some of you soon! Deek


We are happy to announce two additions to Mari's Website:


First, we have the wonderful Sketchbook made by friends and participants of Mari's Sketching Trips. This is a work of love and Mari would be touched deeply. May you all enjoy it as much as we have.

Also, we have added the Slideshow of Mari's life that was shown at her Celebration of Life. She created an amazing journey!



"After years of leading sketching workshops and seeing people with no art training become so bold and confident, what at first was an intuition, is now a certitude: Sketching is not about being artistic.You do not learn how to sketch, you sketch and doing it, your eyes learn to see.

By observing my participants over the years, I developed an approach to sketching that is very simple as it only requires trust in oneself, the ability to see, and ultimately, the desire to travel differently."
...........Mari Le Glatin-Keis

--Please, continue to enjoy Mari's website. As you can see, her philosophy of sketching is here for anyone who will pick up a pen, look around, and sketch. While there will be no more Sketching Workshops led by Mari, she would be touched to know that she is still reaching out to her participants and those new to sketching with these pages.--
