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!

Sad news

I read on Christine Clemmensen's blog last night that Elsebeth Gynther passed away. I never met, nor spoke with Elsebeth and yet her work touched me. Both Elsebeth and Christine co-wrote the book, Scraps: An Inspirational Field Guide to Collage. It's one of the few how to books that I kept in my recent purging of books. Scraps is well written and the art is inspiring. I'm very saddened by her death. The art community has lost a few good souls in recent weeks. I couldn't let Elsebeth's death go unmentioned. Christine has a wonderfully written tribute here.

Somehow, SCRAPS and its authors slipped past me. I appreciate your mentioning it here and giving us a link to learn more about a creative woman who will clearly be missed.

Oh, yes, I am enjoying these before and afters! And, I am really glad that I am not the only person who does this. Sometimes, an awful lot ends up covered up, but like you, I enjoy the bits that peek through.
