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!

Hi Kelly, I have a question for you. I did a collage using the face of a woman from a magazine,altered very slightly. Someone asked me...isn't her face copyrighted? Don't you own the right to your own face?....anyway I didn't know and you could save me chasing all around to find out. I have been a fan of yours for a long time..Love your work. Hugs, Diane

Donna Lee, Thank YOU for putting a big smile on my face and making my day!!!!

thanks for the kind words!
My two cents on the copyright laws:
Everyone is going to tell you something different. The laws, as they stand now, do not do what they originally were put in place to do. Instead, the current law (which, in my two cents, will always be re-written to suit those with the most amount of money. That damn mouse will NEVER go out of copyright.)protects corporations and businesses.
Look at the work of Rauschenberg, Cornell, Duchamp, Schwitters, etc... Their work hangs in galleries and is widely revered. They used images from books, magazines, etc...

Just stay away from that damn mouse and the rabbit who likes to munch on carrots... ;)

You can always email me privately, too!

Obviously doing too many things at one time. I wrote galleries but meant MUSEUMS.
