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!

19 January 2013 Journal Page



Had a great time teaching at Stampin From the Heart yesterday. I only had two classes booked in March and I really missed teaching my in person classes. It's frustrating as it's getting harder and harder to find places to teach at. I love online teaching, too, but there's something quite special about an in person class. 

I was just telling one of my friends that one of the things that I absolutely adore about teaching (both in person as well as online) is the chance to see people's pages blossom with their own unique selves. It's very interesting when you know someone to see their personality and their heart become exposed onto the page. Even with folks that you don't know, the more they share their pages   reveals something about them. It sounds weird but it's so true. I love seeing how the class exercises and techniques are translated by a wide variety of people. Each page is uniquely different and brims with the artist's own unique personality and take on the ideas. You start to know folks by their pages and it's quite a fascinating experience. I am extremely humble and grateful when I can see these pages unfold and come to life.

Here's to the start of a very good week!!

Kelly, I just wondered if you ever take part in art retreat weekends with other tutors? Such as Call of the Wild Soul, or whatever?. Love Karen

Hi Karen,
