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!

Thank you, Howard Zinn

Damnit. We lost another one. Howard Zinn died today in Santa Monica. My heart is extremely heavy right now. I feel like I've lost a family member. He was a great, great man whom I respected and highly revered. Thank you, Howard for everything you've done and for all of us whom you taught (both in person, through your books and lectures and through your actions). We've lost a great man.

“Dissent is the highest form of patriotism.”

Kelly,
I'm with you. Howard Zinn has been my hero For all of my adult life. He had the courage of his convictions and was never afraid to stand up for what he knew was right. I am so sad. Howard, we will miss you.m

Howard was (and remains) hands down the best teacher I ever had. That applies to life and how we live it as well as anything I learned in his seminars. In addition to his extraordinary eloquence and social commitment he was exceptionally patient, gentle and optimistic. I can't process this yet. My heart and soul do not want to let it in...
