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!

1,000 Artists' Books: Exploring the Book as Art


Look what came in the mail yesterday! 1,000 Artists' Books: Exploring the Book as Art edited by Sandra Salamony with Peter and Donna Thomas. You can take a sneak peek inside the book here. I've only flipped through it a few times. I haven't had a chance yet to sit down and fully devour it. It's definitely a book to be savored in bits and pieces. 

My only complaints are the die cut cover (1,000) and the fact that these books haven't been made available in hardcover (I know but I'm allowed to dream, aren't I?) 

This is definitely a title that will have a permanent home in my book collection among other favorites like:

Masters: Book Arts: Major Works by Leading Artists

The Book as Art: Artists' Books from the National Museum of Women in the Arts

Book + Art: Handcrafting Artists' Books

500 Handmade Books: Inspiring Interpretations of a Timeless Form

The Penland Book of Handmade Books: Master Classes in Bookmaking Techniques

Masters: Collage: Major Works by Leading Artists

1,000 Artist Journal Pages: Personal Pages and Inspirations
