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!

My new journal

Here's a little teaser of the cover.

FYI, while you can still get it (and I have yet to see it locally so I may have to order it online), Maira Kalman is on the cover of the October the Artist's Magazine.

Janice Lowry is in the November edition of the Smithsonian (make sure you click on the journal to see more pictures) and recently in the LA Times.

Alisa Golden has a new book out! I had no idea!!!! Grr Amazon doesn't have a sneak peek inside of it. I'm on the lookout for it locally! My friend Marcy gave it a great review on Amazon and if Marcy likes it, it has to be good.

My Book Wish List right now-

David Byrne's Bicycle Diaries

Map As Art

Kelly looks like a great old timer this journal.

I have been struggling with deciding on size, what is your favourite size to work in?

Kelly Kilmer said...

I actually don't have a favorite size. I like to vary all of the books that I work in. They run a whole range of sizes. Big is easy for me but small is hard so I am always making different size books to push myself. I hope this helps!

Ontheroad said...

Thanks, Kelly. My question was somewhat motivated by your "new" journal which looks small(er).

I'd like to try to move from small, tight to bigger, looser.

Kelly Kilmer said...

It's actually bigger than the last one. The last one was about 4x6 maybe? This new one is taller. It was an old book that needed a new life.

Sandy said...

Love the new journal.
