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!

13 July 2010 journal page

Leaving for Boston...safe winged travels for us today. :)

I have my journal and some reading material. I also printed out all of my handouts from Carla's drawing class. Tristan and I are going to draw on the plane. Carla's classes (and her new book) are amazing. They do what they are supposed to do: get you to draw and get you to see things in a new way. Can you ask for anything more?

I was just thinking about what could quite possibly be one of the nicest things that anyone has ever said to me (as a teacher). One of my students (and friends) told me that she takes a lot of classes. She especially loves bookbinding and painting/paper classes as those are her passions. She said that the difference between the other journals that she's made and the ones that she's made with me is that the journals she's made with me, she actually uses. I keep thinking about it and smiling. She didn't just make my day. Say something nice to someone today-anyone! Even a stranger. You never know how bright it might make their day. :)
