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!

A few more days and I'll be in Oregon

I'm looking for very old cemeteries in No CA and OR that are worth stopping by for cool tombstones, etc... Actually, any place cool to take pictures is what we're looking to do! Mom loves taking pictures (especially of scenery). Huge thanks to everyone for the recommendations of places to go and things to see.

There is still room in my workshops at Art On A Lark. Please click here for more info.

I have recently discovered your work and really like it. So inspiring! I was wondering how you prep your journal pages.. I have tried gesso, but it hasn't worked out very well... thanks for any suggestions!

By the way, can't wait for you to schedule a class in San Diego. Also, are planning on teaching in Madison, WI at the Art and Soul Retreat?

Thanks again!

Hi Jennie,
I actually don't prep my pages. I don't use gesso or anything special. The only time I use gesso is for special f/x type things or if there truly is some surface that I need to prep. I work on my pages 'as is'. Sometimes I paint them. Sometimes I collage on them. Sometimes I do both. ;)

No, I didn't submit to teach at Art and Soul this year or next. Hopefully I will have time to send something in for 2011!

great page Kelly. I hope you have fun in Oregon. The next time I'm in New Orleans I'll try to get Randy to stop at one of the old cemetaries and take some photos there for you. ;) I did retweet about your workshop.
