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 more than twenty years. 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 always try to be honest in everything that I do and that includes art journaling. I've never been one of those folks who say that art journaling should only be about the positive. Life isn't always rainbows and gummy bears. It can be pretty damn hard and it's nice to have an outlet and a place to process it.

I'm really looking forward to teaching at a new store (for me!!) tomorrow. I'll be at Kept Creations in Whitman, MA and I'm all packed, prepped and ready to go. Lots of tips and tricks up my sleeve.

I hope that whatever you're doing this coming weekend that you can stop and find a little bit of you time. Even if it's five minutes to glue something down...

Happy Thursday!

An art journal can have many purposes, but I agree with you about using it to process feelings, occurrences, behaviors, etc. To me, this is the best way to use an art journal and honesty is a priority in doing this. I know I appreciate your sharing your pages that are less than "positive" and are totally honest. It can be hard to do that, to open yourself up, but it is a wonderful example for others to follow. Thank you so much!
