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!

My New (revised) Triptych Book Class

In 1999 or 2000, I taught one of my favorite book forms, my triptych book. After some time, I decided to bring the form back but alter it a bit. Here is my new triptych book class a la 2008. The binding is completely different and the book has shrunk! The construction has also been changed and more signatures have been added. I'll be debuting this class a week from Saturday (Dec 20th) in Thousand Oaks. I'm REALLY looking forward to teaching this book form.

If you're interested in the Thousand Oaks class on Dec 20th, you can email me to sign up.

I spent last night making a couple of new books. Tomorrow I'll show you my new "Reclaimed" book I made (it's small and I LOVE it!)

I love this book. I'll be on the lookout for a Phoenix area class. BTW, I ordered the new Danny Gregory book and 2 others of his when I was on the Amazon site. Amazon sure knows how to get you to order more books. I had heard about Gregory a couple of years ago when I took a sketch/journaling class here in Flagstaff.

I love your triptych book!!! I've seen something like that before on the internet with a book opening in the middle like that and it is so different and I can only imagine that it leads to many possibilities!!!

PS. I'm almost done with organizing all of my collage papers!!! Such fun!!!
