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!

New Books!

Happy Mother's Day to all of the Moms out there!

I'm vegging in my pjs today and just relaxing. I'll be reading the books that you see above. I picked both of them up this weekend at Barnes and Noble. I was shocked to see Susannah Conway's book, "This I Know" on the shelves at the Grove. Both books were in the self help section. I've been waiting for over a year now for Susannah's book so I was very excited to be able to hold it in my hands. Marney K. Makridakis' book, Creating Time, comes highly recommended so I was happy to snag a copy of it! 

The three books highest on my WANT list right now are In Wonderland, Francesca Woodman, and 1000 Artist's Books

Deborah Putnoi (whose work I adore) has a new book, The Drawing Mind, that also looks really good! I've added it to my want list.

What art books have you bought lately? Which ones are at the top of your wish list?

Downloaded, read and loved 'You Rule' and already ordered Orly's books. Off to check out your other links. Thanks, as always Kelly, for the recs.

Great book ideas, kelly.

Thanks for the shout too. I like how you worded the request to buy it through my eStore rather than through Amazon, can I steal some of them?

Kelly -- have you read/seen the book 'Open Studios', by Lotta Jansdotter? I got a used copy and have hoovered/slobbered over it the last two days (home sick). If you want, I'll send it to you (with return postage, though!) -- it's AWESOME!

I'd like to see a book by you, and if you need a copy editor, I volunteer.
