What You'll Find Here

I post daily (photos of my journal pages, things that inspire me and personal bits and pieces) to inspire and encourage others. I have always believed that if I can do it, so can you.

You'll find resources (my favorite supplies, books, slideshows of my art journal pages, favorite bloggers, etc...) listed along the right hand side of my blog.

I've been teaching both in person and online workshops for almost twenty years now. You can find out more about my classes by scrolling down along the right hand side of my blog. I strive to make classes accessible to everyone (both beginner to advanced).

I love teaching and truly believe that deep down inside everyone is an artist, capable of creating something. There is power and knowledge in the act of creating something with your own hands, made from your own heart and head.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at EGorey99@sbcglobal.net

Thanks for stopping by!

I'm in love...I'm in love...

Guess what I picked up last night? Danny Gregory's An Illustrated Life. My heart skips a beat every time I open the book. It is definitely, most definitely, one of THE best books of 2008. You need it. Now. The book is FULL and weighty. Lots of artists. All types of artists. Some you know very well and others you will get to know. The book contains written insight into each artist. It's also chock full of journal pages and even-get this-pages of their work space?!?!!? Excuse me while I wipe the drool from my mouth. Seriously, I am in love with this book.

Danny Gregory has NEVER disappointed me with a book publication. This one is just jaw dropping. You'll want one for the holidays. You'll want to give copies of it to every artist and wanna be artist on your list.
