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!

On My Bookshelf

I have been a busy bee all day. I haven't had time for anything other than prep work for my Frenzy Stamper classes.

A little known fact about the life of an art teacher is that it involves tons of prep work in addition to the actual classes themselves. There are ideas to come up with, samples to be made, handouts to be written, supplies to be gathered, bought and prepped, things to be packed. It is an exciting, busy life and one that constantly keeps you asking, "What if?" The reward is seeing what your students do with the ideas you share in class.

A quick peek at what I'm reading this week:

Work/Life 2: The Uppercase Directory of Illustration published by the folks at Uppercase magazine

Mary Oliver New and Selected Poems Volume One

Nausea by Jean-Paul Sartre

What's on your nightstand keeping you up into the wee hours?
