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!

FYI, for those of you in Hollyweird, Mel Brooks is getting his star this Friday. If I was home, you know I'd be there.

Quick update on Adventures in Renting:
Went to the Rent Stabilization board today. Spoke with four different people, all four said different things, contradicting each other. Was told by the main woman at Rent Stabilization that "they" would not come into our apartment today. One inspector said that they were only going to one apartment (not ours). The main inspector said that they were going into all of the apartments (yet the others did not receive notices), and that they would not come here today. We were also told that our building is not covered under Rent Control since the new owners bought the building (in 2001 with a loan of one million, seven hundred thousand dollars from the West Hollywood Community Development Commission-which is part of West Hollywood city government) and turned into low income housing (we are legacy tenants and not under the low income program). We went to the rent stabilization board to find out if the notice was legal. We showed them the agreement (that we have copies of) between the city of West Hollywood and the non profit that says specifically that we are covered under rent control. Yet, everyone at rent control said that because we are now owned by the non profit that we are NOT covered under rent control and that we are under L.A. County laws. WTF?
The adventure continues...

Trekking to Frenzy Stamper in Scottsdale, AZ today. I can't wait!!!! If you see a redhead blasting music on the 10 going East, with art supplies bursting out of the car, wave!
