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!

sometimes it's the little things

I don't know what made me add "promise" but I did, and I like it a whole lot more now.

October, in addition to being my favorite month is also Spooky film month. We watched "Vampyr" the other night. Loved it. 1932 classic German horror film. We started the month with Ed Wood which isn't spooky but oh so appropriate for October (plus it's one of my favorite films.) Hmm... I wonder what's next on the list of films to watch this month. I am in the mood for some Argento and also Dellamorte Dellamore aka Cemetary Man! Tristan wants to watch Nightmare Before Christmas.
Maybe some Lon Chaney, too. Decisions, decisions.

This is a great journal page spread. I know what you mean about the hands. In the first spread they are empty and seem to create a void in spite of all the lovely patterning on them. In the second, they have something to offer and are literally full of "promise"

Kelly-m how the hell do you have time for everything-how do you know about so many books, magazines, artists, who is doing what- not to mention the teaching and art---- and mothering- and traipsing about.
I'm exhausted just from reading-
(and inspired and jealous! LOL)
