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!

Remembering Howard Zinn

Just a small selection of my Howard Zinn books. A People's History is a must read.

Remembering Professor and Historian Howard Zinn, who died one year ago (Jan 27).


"We all know individuals-most of them unsung, unrecognized-who have, often in the most modest ways, spoken out or acted on their own beliefs for a more egalitarian, more just, peace-loving society.
To ward off alienation and gloom, it is only necessary to remember the unremembered heroes of the past and to look around us for the unnoticed heroes of the present."
-Howard Zinn

You are very much missed, but your words, teachings and actions live on. Thank you.

Sorry I didn't stop here sooner, to mark the anniversary. With your Zinn FB profile photo (as best I remember) and your E. Gorey address, you are a giant among us. Will come back for the Stampington discussion. Good teaching at Zinnia.
