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!

Second post of the day-UPDATE on Kelaya

If you didn't read my blog the other day, Julie's original post about Kelaya and her children is here.

Julie found Kelaya again and has an update HERE.

The artwork that is below in today's first post is actually about Julie's first post and helping Kelaya and her children. I created the collage Friday night after reading her post and trying to figure out how we could help.

Please read Julie's blog to find out how we can help this young woman and her family.

I've been a lurker and admiring your blog for a little while now..I'm just starting out on my journey of art journaling. You have given me so much inspiration! I love your style.
I want to thank you for linking this story......I've read the heartbreaking details...but through the wonderful world of blogging you've allowed me to give them just a little bit....and my heart just grew a little bigger.
Thank you so much!
