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!

Uncle Forry is gone...

And it still pains me to think that we never had the opportunity to visit the Ackermansion and listen to his stories...We tried once. I remember picking up the phone from IHop in West Hollywood and learning that we were too late to attend the tour that day. We never had another chance...

David and I met him in 1996 at one of the local conventions. A living idol or simply, The Original American Fan, he really was "one of us". A fan boy, the first, living his dream being surrounded by what made him happy: science fiction, fantasy and horror. He showed me his infamous Bela Lugosi ring. I don't really remember what he said only that he didn't stop talking. It was fabulous. He was fabulous and will be very much missed. Thank you, Dr. Acula.

We love you, Uncle Forry!!!!

More here, here, here, here, here and here.
