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!

14 September 2010 journal page

More doodling, drawing, playing with my pens. More taking snippets of things (rub ons) and not using the whole thing. More "What if?"

Have spent the week working my derriere off on my Pen Work class that debuts this Saturday at Zinnia. Can you tell that I'm super excited about it?!?!?! Working on a new class means buckling down, stirring the soup pot of ideas and picking out only the finest and most ripest things to share with my students. *Rubs hands together*

Blog Love:
Top 10 Bookstores in the U.S. (I disagree with a certain store being on this list. I have my own list of stores that I love to shop at in Los Angeles here. I am working on compiling a list of favorite bookstores beyond L.A. that we have visited and cherish.) Do you have a favorite in your city?
Here's a list of the Top 10 Comic Book/Graphic Novel Stores. (Really?!?! The store is on THIS list too? You've got to be kidding me...That said, I totally agree with Comic Relief and Floating World being on this list. Quimby's is a Mecca that I will someday visit. Meltdown and House of Secrets are great stores, as is Golden Apple Comics).
Speaking of books, I really really want this book. It's on my wishlist.
Carrie Strine's NYC home
A study of butterflies and moths
Thinking of signing up for this class...
Recycled Studio Love
A Visual Delight

Whenever I see bottoms of feet I get really squirmy -- I'm ticklish. I love this doodly page :)
