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 more than twenty years. 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!

The final two pages from the track (the final pages of the book to come in the next couple of days). The weird thing about this black and white photo I used..I wanted a photo of what could be two sisters. I flipped it over and it was taken in Middleboro, MA in 1922. My Uncle still lives in Middleboro and we used to go swimming every summer in his pool. The two women in the photo-their names start with an E and a K just like my name and my sister's (Erin). Only I thought it was a weird (but cool) coincidence. Yup, I'm a dork but at least I admit it. BOOKS to look out for:

1000 Handmade Greeting Cards (Taylor said it was good and I trust her judgement, so I am on the lookout for it.)

Rethinking Acrylic by Patti Brady
