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!

Journaling on the Train

I started the above pages on the train into New York City with David. I'd glue something down, look out the window, color something in, look over at David, bits and pieces from that ninety minute train ride are cemented in my mind because I made the time to stop and look at the life occurring around me. Journaling slows me down and opens my eyes. It's funny what you start to see when you put pen to paper. It's intriguing the little moments of a day that you can remember while you cut and paste. Life rarely slows down but sometimes it slows you down, waves at you and whispers, "You're here. Enjoy it a little."
