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!

12 October 2011 Journal Page

I just revised my class schedule for November and December. You can find it here. I'll be teaching two classes this weekend in South Pasadena (at Zinnia) and Simi Valley, both are open to the public and there's more information here. Next weekend I'm trekking to Frenzy Stamper in Scottsdale. I can't wait! I hope to see you THERE~!

I am really enjoying working in this journal. So far it seems to be chock full of lots of journaling. I guess that there's stuff that I need to get out, eh? I always vary the size, shape and construction of each journal that I make. I've found that over the years it really pushes me. Working small is very difficult for me but a journal this size (it's approximately 8 1/2 x 11"), I have no problem with it. I know quite a few people whose journals are all uniform in size, shape and construction. Not me. That would make me bonkers. Funny how we are all at times?

Blog Love:
Lynda Barry! Lynda Barry! Lynda Barry! (whose new book comes out today, by the way!)
Speaking of Lynda Barry, I took this class (in L.A.) and yes, it was amazing. I really hope that she does one on drawing some day and comes back to L.A. with it.

Funny that I saw this book this weekend and have been on the fence about it ever since.
