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!

11th and 12th September journal page

One of my favorite things about this journal is how much I've been playing with white space. I loved drawing the open flowers here and then filling in the background with my journaling. It's all about stepping out of your comfort zone, right?

Still taking sign ups for my two online classes: A Life Made By Hand and Memories & Reflections (yes, both classes will remain up. Both classes are open, active and you can join at any time and work at your own pace.). Also, don't forget upcoming in person workshops locally here in So CA but I'm also traveling to No CA in October and AZ in November. I hope to see you there!

Stop the presses-Lynda Barry on Tour! THIS FALL! If you are in NYC-or near NYC, you are a lucky bastard INDEED because not only will Lynda Barry be in NYC *BUT* Maira Kalman is doing a presentation with her. I can only hope that someone will go, tape it and put it up on youtube or something. Heck, I'd buy the dvd.

Kelly, Love -- I, too, have been noticing and admiring the onset of more white space in your pages -- do you see what I see? How it really enhances your images? (the word I almost used but didn't, because I'm so SICK of it: POP ... white space makes your images POP) ... woot! But more than that, for me, I love seeing more of your writing, your handwriting I mean, as a much more easily viewed visual element. Awesome.

I like the new journal. It seems like you have been stepping out of your comfort zone a lot in it. Lot's of cool pages. I especially like this one.
