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!

I read this quote on Michelle Ward's blog today and loved it and thought I would share it in the spirit of this day...."The risk of love is loss, and the price for loss is grief, but the pain of grief is only a shadow when compared with the pain of never risking love." - Hilary Stantin Zunin. Cheers to risking it all for love! xo

I'd love a little surprise from you Kelly! I've only recently found your blog but love coming here every day to see your beautiful, inspiring work. I've already signed up for one of your courses (an artist's journal:365) and have found it full of useful tips. I plan on doing another one in a few months.

Love this picture. I so appreciate your daily reminders that art is everywhere. Not sure I would have been able to group my ephemera in such a felicitous way, but it's a good reminder to try.

Also appreciate the rose-free Valentine's Day image! ;-) A nice change!
