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!

7 January 2012 Journal Pages

I'm off this weekend and really looking forward to a nice, long three day weekend. My plans include art making, soup making, bread making, reading, film watching, walking, a visit to the farmer's market and who knows what else? You will find me in my pjs as much as possible this weekend (hey, if I could live in them, I would!)

Blog Love:

Heads up! I'll be on The Altered Page on Sunday (Seth's blog is fabulous and a must read! He also has a book coming out this year! Woo hoo!)

I adore Mindy's work!

Speaking of books and artists whose work I love, Katherine Dunn is another favorite. She has a kickstarter project in the works right now which you can find more information about here. I just ordered "Love Floats" and it is so precious, a little act of love that you can hold in your hands (more information on "Love Floats" here.) I know that you'll fall in love with her work (and the animals) as much as I have (and yes, I have her Creative Illustration book, too!) Check out Katherine's posts over at Huffington Post.

Just a little heads up, I will not be blogging on Wednesday, January 18, 2012. I've decided to participate in the strike against SOPA. Not sure what SOPA is? It ain't good, folks. Learn more here. So, on Wednesday, January 18, you will find a Stop Censorship black bar over my blog header. Please consider joining the strike and please pass it on.

Have a wonderful weekend, folks!

Thank you for your journal pages, they have reinspired me again, as they always do, your "style" is instantly recognisable as yours, yet it never fails to interest and ignite my passion to go and just have a another go myself. Love Karen xx
